I am new to zfs please help me with all the information you can provide
My next project is to upgrade my Dell r710 6x10 4tb unraid array. I will be purchasing a Dell r730xd 24x2.5 +2 system and ill be working with 900-1.2tb sas drives. I wanted to know if its more beneficial to have multiple smaller vdevs in a zpool or 1 large vdev in a zpool. Ie, 8disks x 3 vdevs or 3 disks x 8vdevs in one pool.
This will mainly be used for file storage, media storage for plex, game storage, and esxi vm storage.
If this use case is not recommended please help me in the right direction. I have a dell r420 with 4x3.5 drives as my esxi host. I was thinking about moving the 4tb disks to this machine if truenas would work better without the esxi vm files.
