Pool Configuration

Hello Guys,

So, finished building a 16x16TB server. Now, my question is how many vdevs should i use? A single or two or more than that?

On old forum, i read somewhere about the safe limits for the vdev sizng. Not sure where to find it again. If someone can help, it would be really appreciated.


Depends on your use case

General idea:

Bulk storage: 2 x 8-wide raidz2/3, or 2 x 7-wide with spares.

Block storage (iSCSI): 5 x 3-way mirror + spare, or 8 x 2-way mirror.
