Cage hardware failure on HP 3PAR 7200

Hi.

We had a cage failure on 3PAR 7200 which led  to twenty(20) disk failures. The 3par 7200 bought a few months ago and is utilized for 5%. Fortunatelly we have cage availability and we save the data. But what is the risk to lose data from the time of cage failure untill the replacement of the cage? Note that the cage was replaced after a few hours and the system went back to normal.

Well, if any PD goes bad, you'll lose data, unless you have more than 2 cages and are lucky.

If another cage goes bad, you're data will be unavailable.
