I’m thinking of consolidating 5 of my NAS system down to a single server.
Right now, my hard drives are kind of scattered between those systems and then two plan is going to be moving to Proxmox VE 7.3-3, running ZFS.
I wanted to run the idea of setting up 4 vdevs, each with 8 drives each, and each vdev being a raidz2 vdev.
Two of the vdevs will consist of 6 TB drives (8 x 6 x 2) and two of the vdevs will consist of 10 TB drives.
If I have such a massive storage pool like that, but broken out into vdevs that are no more than 8-wide, is there anything that I should be aware of before setting something up like this?
Any “gotchas” that I should be thinking about or be weary of?
(I tested this configuration in a VM environment with TrueNAS and it didn’t seem to have an issue with it, but I wanted to double check before deploying Proxmox on bare metal, and then using Promox’s ZFS capabilities to set something like this up.)
Your help is greatly appreciated.
