HP Lefthand P4000 Series Storage maximums?

I'm trying to find out what the maximum amount of storage the P4000 Series supports.

I understand it's a modular device in that you add storage as necessary but there must be some kind of limit?

I'm looking for a potential 100TB of storage...

According to Quick Specs the limit is 32 modules, which with 5.4TB SAS modules would give you 172.8TB raw. Remember that HP use 1000 as the multiplier when giving disk sizes rather than 1024 so the 450GB disks will not show as that much. The modules by default will be configured as two x 6 disk RAID5 arrays so there will be some capacity loss there as well but you easily get over 100TB.
