Storage with DL580G7

Hi,

I´ve got a used DL580G7 for my small business with plenty of processing power and RAM for my 4 virtual machines. I have 8 SFF installed in 2 Raid5 Virtual Disks.

I would like to attach more storage to the system for backups and so on. The server comes with 2 Emulex controllers.

How can I attach an external system? What do I need to search for on eBay?

thanks

Re: Storage with DL580G7

The emulex adapters are fibre channel.

If you want storage for a single server, better go for SAS connected disks.

I would search for a D2600 or D2700 disk chassis and a smart array controller. Have a look into the servers "quickspec" for supported devices.

Hope this helps!
