MD3 Dynamic Disk Pools
You would need a minimum of eleven drives. Dynamic Disk Pooling (DDP) is based off of RAID 6, because of this 2 drives will be inherently reserved. A reservation size can also be set in MDSM, and varies based off of total drives in the pool.
The information we have here in our Dynamic Disk Pools Technical Report for MD3 series units can assist you in choosing the correct setup for your environment.
