DL360 G4, add 3rd and 4th drives?

We have a client with a DL360 G4 - they are looking to expand their storage of the machine while keeping their current dual 72.8gb HDD setup (mirrored).

What are the options for expanding storage on this machine?

DL360G4 have two HDD max support, so external storage only option. It may be HP StorageWorks Modular Smart Array 30 SB p/n 302969-B21, or SAN storage (MSA100, MSA1500, ...) To connect MSA30 you will need an additional SmartArray controller (e.g. SA642)

Your other option would be to replace the 2 existing drives with larger drives, thus giving you an additional amount of available space for a "second" logical disk.

Otherwise... you need an MSA30 (or an MSA20, or an MSA500G2, or an MSA1000/1500) as stated.

They can replace the disks with 300 GB disks and have @210GB for a second Logical Drive, while keeping their original 72GB Logical Drive.
