There are limits for storage objects that you should consider when planning and managing your storage architecture.
Limits are listed in the following sections:
Storage limits for Cloud Volumes ONTAP are documented in the Cloud Volumes ONTAP Release Notes.
Storage object | Limit | Native storage | Storage arrays | Data ONTAP Edge |
---|---|---|---|---|
Array LUNs | Minimum size for root volume ^{1} | N/A | Model-dependent | N/A |
Files | Maximum size | 16 TB | 16 TB | 16 TB |
Maximum per volume^{4} | Volume size dependent, up to 2 billion | Volume size dependent, up to 2 billion | Volume size dependent, up to 2 billion | |
FlexClone volumes | Hierarchical clone depth^{5} | 499 | 499 | 499 |
FlexVol volumes | Maximum per node^{1} | Model-dependent | Model-dependent | 200 |
Maximum per node per SVM^{6} | Model-dependent | Model-dependent | 200 | |
Minimum size | 20 MB | 20 MB | 20 MB | |
Maximum size^{1} | Model-dependent | Model-dependent | Model-dependent | |
FlexVol volumes for primary workloads | Maximum per node ^{2} | Model-dependent | Model-dependent | Model-dependent |
FlexVol root volumes | Minimum size^{1} | Model-dependent | Model-dependent | Model-dependent |
LUNs | Maximum per node^{6} | Model-dependent | Model-dependent | 1,024 |
Maximum per cluster^{6} | Model-dependent | Model-dependent | 1,024 | |
Maximum per volume^{6} | Model-dependent | Model-dependent | 512 | |
Maximum size | 16 TB | 16 TB | 16 TB | |
Qtrees | Maximum per FlexVol volume | 4,995 | 4,995 | 4,995 |
Snapshot copies | Maximum per FlexVol volume or Infinite Volume^{7} | 255/1023 | 255/1023 | 255/1023 |
Volumes | Maximum per cluster for NAS^{8} | 12,000 | 12,000 | 200 |
Maximum per cluster with SAN protocols configured^{8} | Model-dependent | Model-dependent | 200 |
Notes:
Limit | Native storage | Storage arrays | Data ONTAP Edge |
---|---|---|---|
Maximum per file or LUN^{1} | 32,767 | 32,767 | 32,767 |
Maximum total shared data per FlexVol volume | 640 TB | 640 TB | 100 TB |
Note:
This limit might be lower for FlexVol volumes that use deduplication.
