Recommended Requested level spare space in P6500 Storage EVA

Hi,

I have a P6500 EVA with 45 disks (450 GB c/u) in one disk group. Almost all the vdisks were created with RAID 5.

Based on the number on disks (45), what is the recommended requested level ? Single or double.

I don't want to waste space, but I want to be sure that the level "single" is enough.
Please, provide me any information according your experience.

Thanks in advance.

 

Roger

Hi

the recommended protection level is single.

this meens the EVA sets aside disk space of two disks from the the total disk space that is 900GB

if you set it at double te EVA sets aside disk space of four disks from the total disk space that is 1800GB.

you can change the protection level on line to see the effect on the space in the disk group.
