Can an MSA60 be connected to a P200 for expansion?

Just curious...

 

I know that the P2000 Storage Arrays can have D2600/D2700 arrays connected to them. Also, from what I understand the D2x00 are later versions of the MSA60 storage units.

 

Can I attach an MSA60 unit to a P2000?

 

Just thinking out loud, if possible wouldn't mind using 2 old MSA60s full of disks for disk-to-disk-to-tape staging...

 

Cheers

AFAIK the MSA70 is supported, but the MSA60 is not.

Hope this helps!

Hmm, that's interesting.

 

As far as I know the MSA60 is the LFF version of the MSA70 (Someone correct me if I'm wrong).

 

I think I may give it a shot when I get this stuff setup. I won't plan on it to work, but if it does, hell, it'll be nice to use 2 old MSA60's for backup storage in a disk to disk to tape style backup. If not, all is good!

Grep the P2000 quickspec and you will dinf the D2x00, the P2000 expansion and the msa70.

Hope this helps!
