    Hello fernando-6

    Thanks for your feedback.

    First off, ‘throughput-oriented’ does not necessarily mean ‘high-performance’. It’s simply a description of how data is processed, focusing on the volume of data that can be handled over time, rather than the speed of each individual operation — something Cold HDD is also capable of. Yes, Cold HDD won’t provide the same level of performance as some of the other storage types, but this is the trade-off. It strikes a balance between affordability and performance, which is essential for data that isn’t accessed often. Our goal here isn’t to chase the highest possible performance regardless of cost; instead, we’re aiming for a practical option that can still meet the nature of the workload being described.

    Let me know if this helps.
