HP 3PAR All Flash
Posted on 2016-08-01
I am currently working on a project where we are using HP 3PAR 8450 All Flash Arrays for the storage. I had a few questions about the 3PAR best practices and functionality and was after some advice from anyone who has rolled out the 8450 or the 7450.
- With regards to using RCIP with SRM, would it be recommended to have a separate CPG for the volumes that will be replicated? I don't see any reason why as the CPG settings will be the same (RAID type etc) but interested to know the best practice.
- Can I create a single CPG and assign the storage, then create another CPG that is empty and migrate virtual volumes over to it when needed?
- Any best practice advice for CPG creation on the all flash? Given that it is a single tier and there are no policy requirements what would be the point of multiple CPG's? Can I just create one and then create more and migrate volumes over after?
I am quite proficient with storage so go as complex as needed
