Just wanted to say that i was the lucky buyer that got to purchase one of the Optane 900p AIC's advertised. The whole purchase experience was superb from start to end! Great guy, very helpful, item was exactly as described and in even better shape than i could imagine (low TBW and warranty left). Good packinging and shipping was really quick to Sween.
Thumbs up for Rand__ a true community hero!
you don't happen to have a 24x SATA/SAS Chassis (expander backplane to save on HBA ports preferred)? I'm looking for a temporary solution, so anything that works is fine. Or do you know if the ancient BPN-SAS-846EL1 backplanes do work with drives >2TB?
I assume you're talking about 3.5?
I do have a partially damaged (dropped by parcel service) 36 bay 847 I can borrow you if you cover shipping - it should have at least 24 working bays, but I have not tested it yet.
Thanks for the offer! However, I'd need it for a few months. Fortunately I just stumbled across netapp disk shelves. I never seriously looked at that stuff, but in this case it might just fit the bill.
