Questions about StorageWorks D2700 Disk Enclosure

Hi Guys,

1. is it possible to connect several D2700 together? For example I can cascade several MSA70 (4) and then connect them to one external port of P800

is it possible with d2700?

2. Is it possible to connect 2 different physical servers to D2700 simultaneously?

3. What you recommend to get Maximum of D2700? What controller should be used? I assume P812 is the best choice?


Thanks,
Dmitry

Hey, see the quickspecs:

1.
Cascading - The D2700 has the unique capability of cascading up to two (2) enclosures behind a single SAS port (depends on the Smart Array Controller). The D2600 has the capability of cascading up to four (4) enclosures behind a single SAS port (depends on the Smart Array Controller).

Doesn't say in the quickspecs, but I don't see why that shouldn't work.

Well the P812 is the "biggest", as it has the 1GB cache on it.
