What upgrade options for MSA1000

We have an MSA1000 Small business SAN that we have not maxed out the storage on. It will live a while longer, but the server it is attached to (Proliant DL360 G4) is getting long in the tooth. The server is running Server 2008 x64 reasonably well, and i suspect it could run R2, but the support for our MSA on this OS is getting pretty slim. Are there any options for upgrading this device for continued life? We have a pretty big (for us) investment in this hardware,and really don't want to have to replace it.

Re: What upgrade options for MSA1000

Hi, although this year's firmware addressed Win2008 support I've not seen any DSMs for Win2008 MPIO and as the MSA1k is getting a bit old there may not be one, still if you don,t need multipath resilience then it has plenty of life left in it. And it makes a pretty good D2D backup solution.
