The AMS1000 doc says it has a capacity of 450 FC drives (30 expansion units) or 420 SATA (28 expansion units). As mine are shipped from HDS the first cabinet has the controller, the required FC tray, and room for an additional 11 trays. I'm assuming an additional cabinet would hold 14 expansion units. This would max out the SATA at 25 expansion units (375 disks) and the FC disks at 26 expansion units (390 disks). Does anyone know how the system could be physically set up to reach the maximums? Do I need to reserve space in an adjacent cabinet?
