  • Use a SPARC® or x86 based system that is running a supported Oracle Solaris release.

  • The minimum amount of disk space required for a storage pool is 64 MB. The minimum disk size is 128 MB.

  • For good ZFS performance, size the memory requirements based on your workload.

  • If you create a mirrored pool configuration, use multiple controllers.
