MSA 30 real Maximun 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

Well, 4.2Tb would be possible if you created a 14x300Gb HDD stripe set.

I would however not reccomend doing that of course for obvious reasons.

Hope this helps,

Sorry, having a bad day.

You can't create a LUN bigger than 2Tb.
