FAS and V-Series Storage Systems Discussions
Hi, is it possible to jhave a switchless cluster of two FAS 2552 that have two controllers each? That means a cluster contraining 4 controllers in total.
And what's the maximum DS 2246 shelves filled with 1.2TB SAS drives can a FAS 2552 take?
See The Solution
You need some kind of switch between the two HA pairs to make a 4 node. The NetApp CN1610 is the standard for a cluster that size.
The 2552 can take a total of 144 drives and up to 1468.8 TB of RAW capacity. per HA pair.
So you can have 144 drives in 6 (1 interna + 5 external). So.. if my quick math is correct, with 1.2TB drives you'd be maxed out at 5 (1 internal + 4 external).
