A common question on PIOPS and striping:
Question: Striping with PIOPS - Is it necessary to stripe data when using PIOPS?
Response: It depends on how many PIOPS you are looking to achieve. Since max PIOPS is per volume is 2000 PIOPS, if you need more then 2000 PIOPS then you would need to stripe. Less than 2000 PIOPS then striping is not required.
