Mix G10 and HCP 500XL-1Gb

We would like to indefinitely add G10 nodes and about 1PB of net new S30 capacity to an existing HCP cluster with 8 x 500XL-1Gb nodes. We can’t SAN attach the new G nodes. We will step them down to 1Gb. Are there any caveats or limitations that would prevent this from working or that we should consider?


  • Firmware = 7.1.2
  • 8 x HCP 500XL-1Gb nodes
  • SAN attached to HUS-150
  • Small 3 x S10 storage pool

Future addition to what they have today:

  • Firmware = 7.2.1
  • + 4 x G10 nodes, 6 x DAS drives, 1Gb ethernet, not SAN attached
  • + 1PB S30 capacity
