Re: MSA1500

If you really aim to have 60TB direct connected, using a Gen5 Proliant DL series host and one of the SAS based MSA series 50,60,70 shelves. Your 1st problem is the OS not accepting that large a lun. Your second would be recovery and rebuild times.

If you really need this you'd be better off going to another OS and purchasing a NAS head backended by a mid range storage system.
