How about replacing all the existing SSD's and doing an unload/reload?
Will that affect maintenance?
If you were planning on buying 6 new ones anyway for 3.9TB of new space.
Adding that to your existing 2.8TB. Will just the six new ones be enough
and trash the old ones?
Big benefit of unload/reload:
- No new disk enclosures to buy, pay maintenance on, power, cool.
- No card slots needed to support new disk enclosure.
- All one size disk. Which can really help disk arm balancing. Granted,
"arm" balancing is different in an SSD world.
And, while we do have STRASPBAL you may find that an unload/reload does a
fine job of really balancing. May not apply to your situation since you
will probably unload/reload, add new load, straspbal.
