Earlier today (ok, really yesterday now), we announced the new MSA 2040, the 4th generation of the very successful MSA family.  I think the ChalkTalk I did, which I'll include again in this post, is a good high-level overview and you definitely need to check it out if you haven't already.   

But I was getting a few questions on Twitter about getting more technical details on the MSA 2040.  We won't have those details to share until June - but I did get an early look at the QuickSpecs and wanted to share a few things from it with you.   Note that the new MSA 2040 won't be available to order for about a month.

 Here is what the MSA 2040 Small Form Factor (SFF), Large Form Factor (LFF), and rear view with two SAN controllers installed looks like.

Here are a couple of charts that have some of the higher-level specs.

 Hopefully these few bits of information help you and will hold you over until the complete QuickSpec is online  - if there is other specifications you want to see, leave a comment and I'll try to grab them.  Here's also the MSA 2040 Data Sheet that also has more details.  

EDITOR'S NOTE: The webcast mentioned in the title is no longer available and was removed from the post. You can get the latest information about the MSA on ATSB with this link The latest on StoreEasy on ATSB is here
