MSA30 REAL STORAGE

Hi,

looking at MSA 30 specifications ( http://h18004.www1.hp.com/storage/disk_storage/msa_diskarrays/drive_enclosures/
ma30/specs.html), it seems that maximum storage is 2 TB, while looking at worldwide quickspecs ( http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11738_div/11738_div.html), in the paragraph "Key features" I see: "Provides storage capacity of up to 4.2TB per enclosure (using 300GB 1-inch disk drives)"

Which one is the REAL Maximum Storage? The second seems more logical, but I have to tell to a customer how much storage will be available it he buys this unit, so I'd need not to tell him the wrong figure.

Thanks

Hi Andrea,

I checked the Quickspecs and in both its showing up as 4.2TB

Could you verify it again?? I blive 4.2TB is the correct one.
