* Note: We do not recommend more than 15 drives in a RAID 5 or RAID 6 array,
as it can result in longer rebuild times. Please contact us with any questions.
See below for the recommended VDev configurations for the AV15
Note: Actual usable space will be ~91% due to ZFS Padding.
Tip: For your convenience, we have compared Storage Efficiency and Rebuild Times so that you may calculate
available storage space based on your preference for capacity vs. speed.

ZFS1 - AV15

for Maximum Storage Efficiency

Recommended: 1Vdev of 15 Drives.
