What Is Dynamic Disk Pools (DDP) Technology?

How to Utilize Dynamic Disk Pools Technology

With the DDP feature, storage administrators can group sets of disks that have the same media type and capacity into a pool topology. All the drives in a pool participate in the I/O workflow and can coexist with traditional RAID drives as well. DDP technology provides faster drive rebuilds than with RAID 5 or RAID 6 and removes the complications of RAID group and hot spare configurations, so storage administrators can focus on higher value tasks.
