Actual capacity of drives vaulted and not vaulted

Jump to solution
Hi,

I was wondering what the actual capacity was of the following drives:
Also if you could list the capacity when used with vault drives and when not used with vault drives.

FC 73
FC 146
FC 300
FC 450
ATA 250
ATA 320
ATA 500
ATA 750
ATA 1000

Thanks for your help,

The actual space available on the Vault drives varies depending on the Model of the array.

So let me first mention the non-vault capacities available which is same for all - then I 'll list the vault capacities for different models.

Also I have added few more disk capacities. But please note that the disks mentioned below may not be available for your system - I only mentioned the value for supported disks per theory not considering whether they are available now on the specific model.

Non-vault disk - capacity available for raw disks -

FC 36 -> 32.99
FC 73 -> 66.61
FC 146 -> 133.65
FC 300 -> 268.37
FC 400 -> 366.76
FC 450 -> 402.57
ATA 250 -> 230.13
ATA 320 -> 297.01
ATA 500 -> 458.56
ATA 750 -> 687.86
ATA 1000 -> 917.15

Vault disks capacities -

CX Series -

FC 36 -> 26.78
FC 73 -> 60.39
FC 146 -> 127.43
FC 300 -> 262.16
FC 400 -> 360.55

CX3 Series

FC 73 -> 33.64
FC 146 -> 100.68
FC 300 -> 235.40
FC 400 -> 333.80
FC 450 -> 369.61

CX4 Series

FC 73 -> 4.64
FC 146 -> 71.68
FC 300 -> 206.40
FC 400 -> 304.80
FC 450 -> 340.61

Hope this helps, others may correct me if I have made any mistakes dealing with so many numbers :)

Re: Actual capacity of drives vaulted and not vaulted

You could also simply calculate the capacity in GiB:

300GB disk = 300,000,000,000 bytes
To calculate the capacity in binary Gigabytes (GiB) do the following:
300/1024/1024/1024 * 1000*1000*1000
Furthermore a Clariion uses 520 bytes per sectors so:
devide the outcome by 520 and multiply it by 512.

So a 300GB disk = 275.1 GiB (520 bytes/sector)
and a 146GB disk = 133.9 GiB

That calculation would be reasonably close but misses some private space used. Also, the base size you are using is not always the nominal 'marketing' size e.g., 300 or 400.

Sandip is using the right numbers, which anyone can get from their EMC rep.

True, but it helps you to understand where all "the missing" space has gone to ;)
Most people don't understand that Giga means billion and NOT 1024^4 !

I have the case on which a wants to mix sata drives with fc drives in the same DAE, using a cx4-120 running flare cod e

04.30.000.5.523.

Is that posible?

Nope..on cx you can mix flash and fc only
