Present large volume storage to Windows server 2012

Hi Expert,
I need to present large storage size to OS layer (Windows 2012 R2), approximately 30TB in a single drive. What's best recommended methods and strategy to implement this.

Any best practice or implementation articles linked to such topic will be appreciated.

Regards,
KH

So using RAID10 you would be looking at 20x3TB disks, but of course there are bigger disks out there (10TB?)

But you need to tell us why, and what performance you need (MB/s & IOPS)

You'll need to use a very large block size when you format then drive to have it present as a single volume. You may also want to consider formatting it with ReFS if you don't need the features only in NTFS. Beyond that, 2012 R2 should handle that size volume just fine.
