How many disk shelves in a aggregate

Hi,

I am having 3240 FAS, How many disk shelves can I group in to single Aggregate

Re: How many disk shelves in a aggregate

Hi and welcome to the Community!

It depends on:

- ONTAP version - prior to 8 there is a limit of 16TB (usable) size; in 8.x you can have aggregates bigger than 16TB & the limit for 3240 is 50TB (usable)

- disk size

Hi Radek Kubka,

Thanks for ur reply,

Is there any limit on number of disk shelves that can be added on to aggregate or it's only size limit

Re: How many disk shelves in a aggregate

It's only the size limit - with large enough aggregate it can possibly span multiple back-end FC loops, or SAS stacks.
