add SFF drive bays to DL 380 G7

We have a couple of DL 380 G7 servers that have one SFF eight drive bay.  It appears that there may be room for an additional eight SFF slot cage if we remove the optical drive.

 

If we're correct in this observation, where can I find the part number of the eight bay SFF drive cage?

 

Thanks,

Marty

Hi,

 

The spare part number for drive cage is correct.

 

Just FYI, the part 516914-B21 is SMALL FORM FACTOR (SFF) DRIVE CAGE KIT.

This kit includes a Cage and Backplane board for connecting the drives and cables.

You need an additional controller or a SAS expantion card to connect the new drives.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
