A method for handling data in a storage system (25) and an apparatus (20) configured to perform the method are described. In particular, in order to store data in the storage system (25), the data being provided as a set of files, a file distributor (22) distributes (11) the files over two or more file systems.

Abstract

A method for handling data in a storage system (25) and an apparatus (20) configured to perform the method are described. In particular, in order to store data in the storage system (25), the data being provided as a set of files, a file distributor (22) distributes (11) the files over two or more file systems. Each file system has a data path. A file system generator (23) generates (12) a virtual file system comprising pointers to the distributed files within the two or more file systems. For reading data from the storage system (25), a file system retrieving unit (26) retrieves (13) the virtual file system. A data interface (24) then reads (14) a set of files from the two or more file systems based on the virtual file system using two or more I/O threads.
