Re: EVA4400 maximum.. available space ?

I'm not sure if i understand you clearly, but if you just want to know how much usable space you'll have here's the approximate calculation:

X = R - Disk_Size * M - L

Where "R" is total raw space (in your case assuming all disks in group are the same size it will be 20*Disk_Size), M means sparing level (4 in your case), L means how much space you'll loose in RAID (one disk size in your case).

Say if you have 20 disks of 300GB,
Formatted capacity of 300GB disk will be 279GB approx

You have double production level for disk group (so minus 4 disk space)

So total formatted capacity 16*279=4464
Usable space after alarm level 95% is =4240
Raid 0 Usable space =4240
Raid 5 Usable space(80% of Raid0 space)=3392
