Storage Allocation on SAS-2 Systems

Drives within all of the chassis can be allocated individually; however, care should be taken when allocating disks from JBODs to ensure optimal pool configurations. In general, fewer pools with more disks per pool are preferred because they simplify management and provide a higher percentage of overall usable capacity.

While the system can allocate storage in any increment desired, it is recommended that each allocation include a minimum of 8 disks across all JBODs and ideally many more.
