Storage system limits

Use this information to determine system limits for a ThinkAgile CP storage block.

All recommended limits listed below are per Storage Block. Adding multiple Storage Blocks within a federated storage pool will generally increase these limits linearly, excluding VM specific limits such as VM disk limit. These recommended limits are based on system stability, hard-coded system limits, as well as time limits to complete each single action (for example, backup/disk creation).
