We are deploying an EqualLogic PS6000XV and we have one question regarding the array.
The EQL has 16 x 600GB. We have selected RAID 50 and EQL automatically build the RAID for us (it didnt give us any option further).
The net available space became as 7.3TB.
- How many volumes of RAID 5 does this storage set up on an automatic RAID 50 ?
- As the net space for a 600GB is 550GB, I imagine that the EQL built two volumes of RAID 50, with that config I would have 7.6GB of net space, where are the other 300GB ?
