Storage Spaces RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey,

    I currently have a ZFS-based file server (Illumos).  I have a disk pooling setup of ZFS' equivalent of RAID 6 (2 drive failures), and have 2 of them grouped for effectively RAID 60.  So 2x 6-drive RAID-Z2's wrapped in a RAID 0, which gives me 1 pool.

    Can Storage Spaces (in Win2K12R2) do this?  I'd like to move my ZFS install to Storage Spaces but this is critical.  From a quick look, it looks like I'd end up with 2 distinct RAID groups in Storage Spaces.

    What I'd like to end up with is:

    2-way mirror with SSD write back
    2-way mirror with SSD write back
    2-way mirror with SSD write back
    2-way mirror with SSD write back
    2-way mirror with SSD write back

    and wrap the lot in whatever Storage Spaces defines as RAID 0.  So one big pool made up of 5 2-way mirrors, each with its own SSD.  So that would be 15 disks - 10 spinning and 5 SSD.

    Thanks

  • Hi Sir,

    AFAIK , storage space can not configure RAID for virtual disks created by storage pool .

    You can take advantage of operating system to create RAID for virtual disk in disk manager .
