VSE for storage volume evaluation?

We are estimating how many VSE for Storage servers needs to be deployed.

Can you share your experience on this? 

We currently have 7 network storages, 4 netapp and 3 hp (HP_3PAR 8440), the overall IOPS is about 180Mbps.

I'm trying to go through the documents but didnt find any best practice things or volume estimation suggestions. 

Thanks in advance!

Re: VSE for storage volume evaluation?

Hi @ElliottCaleb 

Thanks for raising the question in the Community forum.

You can configure the 3 scanner server for 7 NAS storage. 

So that we will the traffic / scan request routed to each Scanner server. Incase if you comes across any slowness accessing the files in future you can increase the Scanner server no harm in increasing it.
