Mixing SSDs with same capaccity but different form factors in the same FlashPool

[ Edited ]

Hi Folks,

 

Is it possible to mix SSDs of same capacity but with different form factors in the same FlashPool?

 

Suppose, we have DS2246 and DS4246 both containing 400GB SSDs and we are creating a FlashPool with some SSDs from DS2246 and some from DS4246.

Is this supported?

 

Also, can we assing one of the SSDs from DS4246 as a spare for the 2.5" SSDs?

 

Thanks.

Hi,

Please check the link: http://www.netapp.com/ca/media/ds-3096-0913.pdf

Refer  table 1 on page 3

Flash Pool support Mixed shelf SSDs + HDDs:  DS2246, DS4246

Refer table 2 on page 4 Flash Pool also works in “shelf-to-shelf” configurations in which SSDs from a pure SSD shelf are combined into an aggregate with HDDs from other shelves
