Mixing Hybrid with All Flash Nodes

With 5.1, is it possibel to mix 2 x Hybrid Nodes with 2 x All Flash Nodes or do we still need to have 3 x Hybrid Nodes and 2 x All Flash as a minimum?

When adding any different node type it's preferred to add them in pairs, this is a must if adding nodes with larger capacity than existing ones.

 

In your example 2x hybrid and 2x AF nodes would be fine. Just use matching hybrid nodes and matching AF nodes.

Thanks for the quick response. In this scenario is it still possible to enable Erasure Coding if having 2 x Hybrid and 2 x All Flash?

Hello,

 

Yes erasure coding will work normal with this config, min number of 4 nodes is met.
