(Note: I/O performance depends on the types of hard-drives used. Different models might result in performance increase of up to 50% over models not in the recommendation list.)

IMPORTANT: All disks within a single storage pool must meet the following requirements:

- Same manufacturer
- Same rotational speed
- Same capacity

Mixed disk configurations may result in unpredictable device behavior and will not be supported. If you need technical assistance - please be prepared to backup your data and remove any unsupported drives or configurations.
