    Default Active - Active Licence conversion

    Hi we have 2 V7 16TB DSS servers, if we where to add the active active feature to the servers what would our licence storage capacity be for the pair of servers?

    If you have two 16TB servers in active-active cluster then each server will have 8TB of active storage and 8TB for mirroring of other server. Together it will be 16TB of active data per two-server cluster.

    Of course you will have more available storage space on two separate servers, but failover cluster must use mirroring for storage controllers redundancy, which is its main application.
