VA 7400 Stripe Group

We plan to use a VA 7400 disk array in RAID 1+0 mode.

If there are multiple LUNs in a redundancy group, is the data for each LUN striped across all the disks in the redundancy group ? In other words, each LUN is not limited to a subset of the disks in the redundancy group.

I believe this is the case, but was unable to find explicit confirmation in any of the documentation.

Thanks.

Re: VA 7400 Stripe Group

You are correct. All LUNs on any one Redundancy Group span then entire RG, including spares. This gives optimal performance.

Re: VA 7400 Stripe Group

Hello all!
Only one thing!
The VA 7100 has a ONE REDUNDANCY GROUP and The VA 7400 has a TWO REDUNDANCY GROUP, because the VA7100 has a One Backpannel and The VA7400 has a TWO BACKPANNEL, this is the difference between both Virtual Array.

The lun in this case "va7400" the data striped across 2 RG!!! OK?

Actually, the LUNs of a VA7400 do not stripe across 2 RG's. Each LUN resides on one of the two RG's. So, your largest LUN is about 1/2 the capacity of the array.

Re: VA 7400 Stripe Group

Thanks for the answers. I was aware of the other details concerning redundancy groups... I just needed to confirm the stripe group size.
