The System Pool

The system pool is a normal storage pool that QuTS hero uses to store system data such as logs, metadata, and thumbnails. By default, applications are installed to the system pool. If no system pool exists, either because the NAS has recently been initialized or the system pool was deleted, QuTS hero will assign the next storage pool that you create as the system pool.


To ensure system performance and stability, the system pool should consist of only SSDs.
