I am curious to find the reason behind 'pre-create object' for a new
My wild guess is that when you are using 'spinning disks' as the backend
storage, pre-creating objects before the actual data comes will minimize
latency overhead of disk seek.
If my wild guess is correct, my follow-up question is:
If I am using SSD based devices as backend storage, do we need this
pre-create anymore given that SSD are super-fast compared to spinning media
Appreciate if anyone can provide some insight into this.
