3PAR Bring your own disk (BYOD) question

Warranty, licensing, and support aside. Does the 3par Accept and allow you to use any SATA/SAS drive? For example later down the road if we wanted to purchase some of the new enterprise grade Samsung’s 16TB SSDs. Would the system allow it to be used? Or does it strictly only activate HP certified drives?  We are currently considering going with Lefthand VSA because it allows you to BYOD, But if 3PAR doesn’t restrict you we may look into going the 3par route.

Since the 3PAR OS is managing the firmware of disks, it will probably only except "known" devices.


Hope this helps!
