Since Scale 5.0 was released I've not seen much guidelines provided on how to make the best of the new filesystem layout.

For example, is dedicated metadata SSD's still recommended or does the Scale 5 improvements mean we can just do metadata and data pools now?

I'd be interested to hear of anyone's experience so far.

Well given metadata performance is heavily related to random IO performance I would suspect that dedicated metadata SSD's are still recommended. That is unless you have an all SSD based file system :-)
