  • 1.  Sizing of disk volumes

    Posted Jun 06, 2019 05:26 PM

    Hi all,

    I have a 40TB data repository. Should I make

    1. One  large HW RAID filesystem containing all spinning disks in a HW raid.
    2. a couple of HW RAID filesystems?

    I am leaning towards #1 because of simplicity

    Current server spec:

    24 x 2.4TB spinning disks

    2 x 256GB SSD on a Dell Boss Card

    vmware 6.5 or 6.7

    Any pointers would be super helpful!

    You can create a RAID out of your spinning disks and after that on VMware you crean create several datastores.
