Could you please let me know maximum 1 LDEV capacity that I can create with Hitachi G600? thank you in advance.
For all G/F systems
The largest LDEV you can create (to "thick" provision to a host or use as a pool-volume):
- From an external virtualized PG (i.e. from another storage array) is 4,294,967,296 KB (4 TB, 8,589,934,592 blocks)
- From an internal PG is 3,221,159,680 KB (2.99 TB, 6,442,319,360 blocks)
If you create a pool from 1 or more LDEV's (of whatever size within the above range) and from the pool create DP-vols (Dynamic Provisioned Volumes, aka thin provisioned volumes) to assign to a host, they can be up to 256TB and can over-subscribe the pool capacity (as you would expect from thin provisioning)
You can virtualize volumes larger than 4TB using data direct mapping
thank you so much for the information.
