Advice on expanding an MSA1000 SAN Array

We currently have one MSA1000 SAN cabinet but we would like to add a second cabinet to expand our system.

What would I need to accomplish this?

Thanks

Re: Advice on expanding an MSA1000 SAN Array

Jason,
it sounds like you want to expand your existing MSA1000 storage array with an additional disk drive enclosure.

The MSA1000 has two external SCSI buses. You have to decide if you want to use the MSA30 SB or DB model. The first one puts all 14 disks on an external connector. The DB splits the MSA30 into 2 busses with 7 disks.

Here is a link to the MSA30:
