In this video, Mark Henderson and Mike Pehlan from NetApp demonstrate how Dynamic Disk Pools enable performance, efficiency, and scalability. Watch as they cause a double-drive failure on two separate storage systems and then compare the RAID-6 system with a three-day rebuild to a system with Dynamic Disk Pools that can rebuild in around 18 hours.

DDP distributes data, parity information, and spare capacity across a pool of drives. Its intelligent algorithm (seven patents pending) defines which drives are used for segment placement, ensuring full data protection. DDP dynamic rebuild technology uses every drive in the pool to rebuild a failed drive, enabling exceptional performance under failure. Flexible disk-pool sizing optimizes utilization of any configuration for maximum performance, protection, and efficiency.
