About Quick I/O

Quick I/O for Databases (referred to as Quick I/O) allows applications to access preallocated VxFS files as raw character devices. This provides the administrative benefits of running databases on file systems without the performance degradation usually associated with databases created on file systems.

Quick I/O is part of the VRTSvxfs package, but is available for use only with other Symantec products.
