    Hi Anthony.
     
    Are there any plans to create an app (Android, iOS, WP) that would allow us to check our pools?
     
    Would like the ability to monitor disk removals etc. from an app, rather than having to keep running DB Manager.
     
    Thanks.

    QLink got a reaction from carpinteyroryn in "Landing Zone" questions   
    nobody has some answers to my questions ?
     
    today i faced a Problem with landing Zone and DB 2.0.3.0
     
    i tried to copy 3TB of data from my old Server to my new one.
     
    in my new Server there are 3x4TB HDDs + 2x250GB SSDs together in one pool. the 2 SSDs are in Software Raid 1 by Windows Server 2012 R2 and set as landing Zone in DB.
    The first TB copied without an issue, but then i got following error during the copy process:
     
     
     (see screenshot)
     
     
    seems like landing Zone has gotten full ?!? how can this happen ? and how can i fix this ?
     
    edit: seems like the file balancing process got stuck and so the Landing Zone drive got full...
    after a complete restart of the server and a manual start of file balancing, DB moved all the files in queue away from landing zone to the final destination on hdd pool.

    hi guys!
     
    are there any detailed information about the new landing zone feature in v2 ?
     
    i have some questions:
     
    can i set one landing zone drive for multiple pools, or do i need one landing zone per pool ? what triggers DB moving the files from landing zone to the destination drives ? time ? disk usage ? space on landing zone ? what's the best way to protect files on the landing zone ? 2 SSDs in raid1 ? 2 SSDs with file duplication on ? (is duplication possible on landing zone drives ?) what size should the landing zone drive have to get most speed gain, but also not wasting space ? what happens with data which i copy direct on the landing zone drive using a mapped drive letter ? can i define somewhere, that this data should stay permanently on the landing zone ?

    for me this is the only feature why i'm preferring storage spaces over drive bender.
     
    it would be truly awesome if we could enable a write-back-cache and storage tiering like in windows storage spaces.
    it definitly gives a huge performance boost.
     
    using storage spaces the gain is depeding on your configuration at about 10times faster performance.
    see this test for example: http://www.aidanfinn.com/?p=15430
    or just google it, there are many similar tests getting the same effect.
     
    so it's like files getting moved automatically to the "landing zone" if system recognizes high I/O from these files.
     
    i hope you get this precious feature into final v2.

    i'm on server 2012 r2 but i guess the ui should look the same.
     
    you can enable/disable "Landing Zone" through the "show detailed information about this drive"-tile right next to the "swap"-tile and the "remove"-tile in DB Manager.
