Object Storage

StorageGrid maximum capacity per node

Hi, Experts,

 

      In SG TR-4889,  when deploy SG on a bare metal or virtual host platform, there is limit per storage node as below:

 

− Maximum number of object store volumes per Storage Node: 16
− Maximum object store size: 36 TiB (39 TB)

 

     That means maximum capacity per node is 16 volumes*39TB =624TB.

     Do you have experience to deploy higher capacity than the limit/node ?

 

Rgds,

Jackie

HI @Jackiez 

 

As per documentation for GRID 11.7, this is the limit for software-based Storage Node: 

 

The maximum tested LUN size is 39 TB.

A software-based Storage Node can have 1 to 16 storage volumes—​3 or more storage volumes are recommended. Each storage volume should be 4 TB or larger.

Note: An appliance Storage Node can have up to 48 storage volumes.

Amitra,

 

   Thansk for your information !  Since need software-based storage node , so we filed FVPR for that.

Correct, those are the limits for software defined deployments. I suggest filing an FPVR if you have a need to go larger.
