How to increase disk throughput without decreasing disk utilization

Want to increase disk throughput

Isolate performance-critical files in a single filesystem (or group of filesystems), suffer the storage inefficiencies...

there, and optimize the rest of the filesystems for storage efficiency. This solution works surprisingly well. Performance-critical files are almost always large, and storage efficiency is less critical for large files (per file wasted space is small compared to the files size).
