Volume sizes with MSA1500

Hi,

I'm designing a small SAN with an MSA1500 and four attached MSA30s. The MSA30s will be fully populated with 300 gig disks so physical disk space will be 16.8TB (less any RAID overhead). Attached to the SAN will be a few servers some of which will be Win2003 clusters. If I am using Storage Virtual Replicator and pooling disks, what is the maximum volume size I can create for the cluster?

Re: Volume sizes with MSA1500

Last time I checked, logical disk size on the MSA1500 was limited to 2 TeraBytes, the VR pool to 8 storage units of 1 TB(!) max. (that would make a 8 TB pool) and an individual virtual disk was limited to 2 TB. The pool is limited to 8 virtual disks.

Re: Volume sizes with MSA1500

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. If this is the case, am I designing this starting at the wrong point? I want large volumes available to MS clusters (i.e. I can't use Windows volume spanning on dynamic disks)
