I have a cluster with 2 FAS8060, they are NOT AFF model, with 6 2246 fully populated with 800GB SSD. I want to ADP them and need your opinion. Would it be better to go with RAID group of 28 + 28 + 16 or 25 + 25 + 22? Is there any limitation I'm hitting? I think I saw an article somewhere that AFF model supports only upto 36 drives and I was wondering if FAS8060 is the same case.

from best performance and data safety perspective, use the default raid group size value.
for best performance, use max raid group size.
You should follow these guidelines when sizing your RAID groups composed of SSDs:
The RAID groups do not have to be exactly the same size, but you should avoid having any RAID group that is less than one half the size of other RAID groups in the same aggregate when possible.

You will be hitting a few limitations with your plans - sorry
Enjoy your new system!
