MSA1500+Windows: Disk size limits

I have a customer that wants a 16TB volume on a windows server. Is it possible to present 16TB from an MSA1500 to a Windows 2003 server as one drive letter?

I know the performance will be less than stellar but he wants to do it. Yikes.

MSA can present maximum 2TB LUNs. But you can concatenate this slices in one big volume with Windows Server dynamic disk or other LVM like Veritas.

I just found a link pertaining to that.
I know it's a horrible idea.

Thanks for your input.
