Pinned topic Dynamic Disk Pooling (DDP) - DS3500 Capacity Calculator Tool

‏2013-02-05T11:48:47Z |
Hello,

Hello all. I am trying to understand the DS3500 Capacity Calculator Tool.
It is something wrong with the Capacity Calculator from 08.Sep2012
A DDP-DiskPool with 96 x 600GB and a Preservation Drive Count of 4 Drives has
ONLY 39.563 GB USABALITY CAPACITY ????

Before the RAID6 Calculting for Logical Drives , the Pool has a usabilty Capacity
of 51.336 GB !
--> 96 x 558GB - ( 4 x 558GB for DriveCount Preservation ) = 51.336 GB
After Raid6 Calculating
--> 41.068 GB

May I'm wrong or what is the mistake ?
Can anybody explain the calcultaing of an DDP-Pool ?
Thanks
