Re: single volume maximum scale out/up

Yes, absolutely.  The feature you are looking for is called FlexGroup.


"A FlexGroup volume is a single namespace that is made up of multiple constituent member volumes and that is managed and acts like a NetApp FlexVol volume to storage administrators. Files in a FlexGroup volume are allocated to individual member volumes and are not striped across volumes or nodes."
