  • Page 118: Logical Storage Elements

    Logical storage elements consist of those components that translate the physical storage elements to file system elements. The HPE StoreEasy 1000 Storage uses the Window Disk Management utility to manage the various types of disks presented to the file system. There are two types of LUN presentation: basic disk and dynamic disk.

    The operating system supports FAT32, FAT, NTFS, and Resilient File System (ReFS). All file system types can be used on the HPE StoreEasy 1000 Storage system. However, VSS can only use volumes that are NTFS formatted. Also, quota management is possible only on NTFS.

    By using shadow copies, the HPE StoreEasy 1000 Storage system can maintain a set of previous versions of all files on the selected volumes. End users access the file or folder by using a separate client add-on program, which enables them to view the file in Windows Explorer.

  • Page 122: Guidelines For Managing Disks And Volumes

    Some SSA guidelines to consider: Do not modify the single logical drive of HPE StoreEasy 1000 Storage because it is configured for the operating system. Spanning more than 14 disks with a RAID 5 volume is not recommended. Designate spares for RAID sets to provide greater protection against failures.

  • Page 123: Scheduling Defragmentation, Disk Quotas

    Basic disks can contain up to four primary partitions (or three primary partitions and one extended partition). Format drives with a 16 K allocation size for best support of shadow copies, performance, and defragmentation. NTFS formatted drives are recommended because they provide the greatest level of support for de-duplication shadow copies, encryption, and compression.
