I am using the storage from a Storwize V5000 behind a SAN Volume Controller. I have 1 Controller and 5 enclosures (4 TB drives) for a total of 200+ TB's of data. Based on this, is there a way to determine what the optimal size for volumes on the V5000 should be?
Some additional data is that I'll be connecting to an 8 node SVC cluster as the "host". On the V5000 I have created 8 hosts, one for each SVC node with four ports each. When configuring the storage on the V5000 I chose the automatic option which created 72 Raid 6 disks.
Hoping someone can give some advice on what would be the best way to determine the volume size.
