options for affordable 2U, 12 bay chassis?
curious for recommendations. all I've been able to find is this: http://www.supermicro.com/products/c...TQ-R800LPV.cfm
unfortunately it seems close to impossible to find, haven't seen a single online store that sells them.
If you don't mind taking up an extra 1U of space, Supermicro's 3U SC932 and 933 series are excellent. We use the SC932T-R760 for our own storage systems:
check with Chong @ ApaqDigital (http://www.apaqdigital.com) they may have some systems available based upon that platform.
There are also some nice 2U 8 disk sas / sata units with dual multi-lane ports
you can pick those up from CDW and the like. We have a number of their R4ML 1U 4 disk shelfs
SC826tq was just announced, and it usually takes supermicro at least a month to make newly announced product becoming "really" available.
2U sc825tq (8x H.S. bays + 2x fix-mount) or 3U sc836tq (16x H.S. bays) will be your best bet if you can't wait that long for sc826.....
Cenbro make some good multidisk hotswap chassis. 12 disk, 16 disk up to 40 disk I believe.
Ditto on checking with Chong @ ApaqDigital (http://www.apaqdigital.com)
You can't go wrong with him.
Atlanta, GA and Las Vegas, NV. Colocation
I know you only wanted a chassis but how about an HP DL320s?
It's pretty cheap and will take 12 drives in 2U.
Supermicro came out with little guy, IMHO is better than the 15x drive system.
1 more bay + cdrom/floppy all in 3u. We have one of the 15 bay guys and are thinking about picking up this 16 bay chassis.
I second the reccomendation for Chenbro, their products have always been top notch.
MA Labs has an ETA of 1/3/07 on that case (black version) and price is $639. They do not have an ETA on the silver one.
