Drive configuration for Alletra 6000

Hello,

I think that Alletra 6000 could have 12 drives or 24 drives in the base enclosure.
If the base enclosure have 24 drives, how configuration is redundancy?
"24(21+3)" or "12(9+3) x2"?

 

Best Regards,

Hi, 

it depends.

If you order it with 12 Drives (9+3) if order with 24 you got 21+3.

If you add later additional 12 Drives (maybe with a different capacity) to a 12 Drive configuration then you got a Drive Set A and B with each 9+3.

If the drive sets are both the same capacity and the array is reimaged in the field, the drives will be reconfigured into a single 21+3 RAID set.
