Recommended raid group size

Currently Being Moderated



I would like to know what your suggested Raid group size and number of disks is by Raid Type RAID-DP. Also would like to have two Aggregates for max IOPS.


NetApp FAS2240-2, HA, 24x450GB (SAS 10K), Dual Controller met Data ONTAP

    With this config (assuming a "load balance" HA Setup) you are not facing the raidgroup size question...


    two controllers / each with one aggr0 of 11 disks, leaving 1 spare disk per controller...




    PS default raidgroup size with SAS disks is 16 disks per RG (max 28)


    RAID-DP (Default)

    ATA/BSAS/SATA: 14     FC/SAS: 16     SSD: 23


    ATA/BSAS/SATA: 20     FC/SAS: 28     SSD: 28


    RAID4 (default)

    ATA/BSAS/SATA: 7     FC/SAS/SSD: 8    


    ATA/BSAS/SATA: 7     FC/SAS/SSD: 14
