What is a LUN disk?

What is a LUN disk?

In simple terms, a logical unit number (LUN) is a slice or portion of a configured set of disks that is presentable to a host and mounted as a volume within the OS.

What is LUN ID in storage?

A logical unit number (LUN) is a unique identifier for designating an individual or collection of physical or virtual storage devices that execute input/output (I/O) commands with a host computer, as defined by the Small System Computer Interface (SCSI) standard.

What is LUN and volume?

A LUN is a logical volume from the point of view of the storage. From the client point of view the LUN it is a disc volume that can be partitioned. Volume is a generic term. It means a contiguous storage area. This means that you might need to partition it and that you might also need to create a filesystem.

What is LUN masking in storage?

LUN masking is an authorization mechanism used in storage area networks (SANs) to make LUNs available to some hosts but unavailable to other hosts.

What is LUN and datastore?

A LUN is a logical volume on a storage system, which usually is presented to one ore more hosts. A datastore is a partition on a disk or LUN which is formatted with VMware’s VMFS filesystem.

How do you make a big LUN?

What is LUN in Netapp storage?

A LUN is a logical representaion of storage. It looks like a hard disk to the client. It looks like a file inside of a volume. You can see the Data ONTAP ‘Block Access Management Guide for iSCSI and FC’ for documentation.

How much space does RAID 5 take?

RAID 5 results in the loss of storage capacity equivalent to the capacity of one hard drive from the volume. For example, three 500GB hard drives added together comprise 1500GB (or roughly about 1.5 terabytes) of storage.

Which is better RAID 10 or RAID 01?

Main difference between RAID 10 vs RAID 01 Performance on both RAID 10 and RAID 01 will be the same. The storage capacity on these will be the same. The main difference is the fault tolerance level. On most implememntations of RAID controllers, RAID 01 fault tolerance is less.
