Should I configure partitions on the Perc controller or from within Windows?
Posted on 2014-08-08
I have a Dell T620 with 36TB of space. I don't know enough about storage and am reading and hearing various opinions. I want to know if I should carve up the space (200GB for the host OS, maybe 2TB for VMs, and the rest for file storage) by creating Virtual Disks on the Perc H710P controller, or if I should just create a single large VD and carve up the space with Windows Volumes.
What provides me with the most reliability? What provides me with the best expansion capabilities? If I set a 2TB partition for VMs and find out I need to expand that later, can I do so with either solution?
