Article Summary

CTERA Edge Filers support NAS volumes. NAS volumes are accessible through file access protocols. You can create folders on NAS volumes and store files in the folders. You can also define folders as network shares and share them across the network, via several protocols.

You can create an array to combine the drives into a larger pool of storage, set up redundancy between drives, and/or increase performance. Once you've set up an array, you can create volumes, which are logical units of storage.
You can define additional virtual disks for a CTERA Edge Filer that is not an H-series CTERA Edge Filer and create RAIDs for these disks. The CTERA Edge Filer supports the definition of up to 16 virtual disks. Depending on the license, it is possible to enlarge the virtual disks. CTERA recommends that the maximum storage is defined as a single disk.

Note

The H-Series and X-Series CTERA Edge Filers RAIDs are preconfigured. You cannot change these configurations. The HC100 is preconfigured with a single volume.

How is Storage Allocation Controlled

Per share – You can limit the size of a shared folder by creating a specific volume to store that folder.
Per user – You can enforce quotas per user, as described in Allocating Disk Quotas to Users, that limit how much space on a volume each user can fill.
