Expand 2-tier, one pool MSA 2052

Hi.

Need to add more disk for more preformance to our MSA 2052.

Current setup: 2-tier, 1 pool only (A)

6 800GB SSD RAID6 (no spare) (HPE MSA 2052 SAN Dual Controller SFF Storage)

10 4TB MDL RAID6 + 2 spare (HPE MSA 2050 LFF disk enclosure)

Connected to 6 hosts with a total of 86 (mail, file, sql, web, everything) vm.

 

Should I go for 4 more SSD, total 10 or add enclosure with 10k SAS (raid6 or 10?) and create 3-tier?

10 disks is max in same tier on raid6 (power of 2)? I don´t beleve in raid5.

 

Pool B is saved for a later time with the other free half of main unit with ssd + mdl/10k enclosure

Adding more SSD drives will ofcourse increse performance of your system comapred to any other drive type.

You can also consider "Volume Tier Affinity" feature as well.

You can go through below guide which will help you for better understanding,
