Just needed some clarification on Base and Block Licenses for Hitachi BOS. If a Client purchase a License of 120Tb for example, is this a Block License or the 120Tb capacity only comprises of the overall physical HDD size(SAS/SSD)?
With RAID6, the 150TB raw data will become around 112TB of usable capacity. However because they purchased a license for 60TB, the features on the array will only function up to 60TB.
The license is in terms of usuable capacity and not raw capacity (physical HDD size).
Thanks for the reply Dang.
I have a Client who purchased a raw capacity(HDD) of about 150Tb(SAS&SSD) with a Hitachi BOS block license of 60Tb. Considering Raid config of 6D+2P, do you mean the usable capacity will be less than 60Tb? How about the 150Tb raw capacity? I actually need more information about this. Thanks in advance.
Thanks Dang, You've actually simplified the whole stuff for me.
I understand it perfectly now.
