DPM 2016 Modern Backup Storage Maximum Volume Size

I am attempting to choose a hardware platform for a DPM 2016 system. New install of Server 2016 and DPM 2016.

I understand that there is a maximum size limitation for Modern Backup Storage.


This documentation describes the requirements for MBS as follows:

Modern Backup Storage     You must use Volumes.

                                       A single DPM server supports up to 120TB of storage.

Does this mean any one volume must not exceed 120TB? For example, can I add three 120TB volumes to DPM 2016?

Or does it mean that the sum of all volumes must not exceed 120TB? For example, would I be limited to two 60TB volumes? Or a single 120TB volume?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There is some clarification lower down the page.

To protect this maximum size, DPM needs 120 TB per DPM server, with 80 TB replica space with a maximum recovery point size of 40 TB.
