VDisk Limitation

Device: MSA 1040 SAN

Is there a limitation on the number of disk in a vdisk?


Re: VDisk Limitation

As per Quick spec you can find below information, (page no 5)

"Maximum hard drive counts vary by RAID levels: 2 drive max for RAID level 1; max of 16 drives for RAID levels 0, 3, 5, 6,
and 10; max of 32 drives for RAID level 50. With GL200 or newer firmware and the purchases virtualization license
multiple Disk Groups can be aggregated into a Storage Pool."

You can also check best practices technical paper, (page no 39)


Hope this helps!
