Adding hard drives to ML350e server

Hi everyone, 

I have an ML350e Gen 8 server (p/n 686771-S01) in which I added a P420 controller at purchase (p/n 631670-B021). The first drive cage is filled to capacity with 6 LFF drives.

I need to add hard drives to this server to increase storage space.

From what I found online, I would need to add a second P420 controller. I also need an additional LFF drive cage  with the hot plug backplane, but I just can't find the part number for this item.

Can anyone help?

New controller needed. P420 works (631670-B21 ), or other compatible controller.
LFF cage kit 659485-B21
