HP TRIM Document Store

 

We wanted to mount a new document store as we are running short of disk space on the main doc store.

 

what suits the architecture better ?

 

Creating an additional Hard drive (example : Z:\) and creating a new folder and configuring that as a NEW document store ?

 

OR

 

Creating a new folder on the same drive and configuring new documents to go on this new doc store.

i.e adding more disk storage to the same drive.

 

 

I am trying to understand if individul drives handling a new document store each is better suited as opposed to multiple document stores on the same drive.

 

 

Thanks for your valued response in advance.

One large drive is fine. Multiple smaller drives is fine.

 

As long as you have a good backup process, there's really no difference between the options until you get to the hardware level. e.g. Are they physical drives in a RAID array? Are they just logical drives in ESX server? Network drives?

Thanks Grundy,

They are logical drives in ESX server.

Then there's no performance difference at all. :)

Just add a new drive, make it the default store for all objects/records types, and you're done.

You can also expand drives in ESX server, but this should be done outside of hours with all the TRIM services stopped.
