Hi, you should check if it's a business case for you to change to AFF. There are 3 shelves connected and you want to go for a 4th one. With the inline compression you need less capacity that before. Calculate the rack space, cooling maintenance etc. M.
Hi, thanks for your reply. Migrate to AFF is not possible. We have also SATA shelf connected to this FAS. We have to stay in 7-mode and keep SAS and SATA shelf. We don't want use inline compression because of performance and CPU usage.
Hi, SSD will add performance if the bottleneck is the IO related. Whats the CPU and disk load? How do the CP looks like? Does the 3240 support SSD? If your systems suffers on bore-out syndrom, SSD is just a waste of money. Whats the over-all config of this system? M.
