We just purchased a new unit with dual controllers with 600GB 10k SAS drives. While looking around, I noticed the disk pool feature, which seems a bit more attractive over the traditional RAID setup. I'm curious, what is a recommended setup for something like VMware (BladeCenter) vSphere 5.0?
The disk pool concept is new to me, and while the documentation does a good job of explaining the feature, I want to see how some have used it in a real-world scenario. Any suggestions would be awesome!
Thank you in advance.

Re: Setting up DS3524 disk pool2013-04-02T21:21:38ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.Bumping this up! I am also setting up a DS3524 as well and was immediately presented with the Disk Pool Auto Config wizard.. seems like the way to go but wanted some real world feedback.
My convern is this uses RAID6 which I understand hurts write performance correct?
