Hello Sluetze,

If you are talking about the question on the physical drives for IsilonSD Edge that was posted on 17th Nov. then the answer is –

Yes, you will need 6 physical drives internal to each ESX host that will act as data disks. Additionally you will need a Journal and boot drives as well per ESX host. You can use the same disk for both Journal and Boot. It is recommended to use SSD for Journal.
