    I'm in search of a 1U or 2U chassis to use strictly for housing SSDs. It has to be less than 24" deep otherwise I'd go for a SuperMicro SC216 or the like. Needs to house 8-16 SSDs. Hotswap is not necessary but wouldn't turn it down ;). I'd prefer JBOD but I could make a regular chassis work.

    Does a chassis like this exist?

    That's why I'm here. I can't find one. Hoping someone has had better luck than me.

    Maybe you can just make your own?

    I'd love it if this was a skill I possessed but it's jut not the case. I either don't have it, don't have the time, or don't have the will. I also just don't have the work space in my condo even if I wanted to :(.

    Was hoping to avoid having to convert 3.5" drives but it's something I will consider if I get desperate.

    Looks legit. Any idea how much these cost? I'm guessing a lot.

    Didnt say you had a budget, what is it?

    Here is a cheaper model. $1200 "+getMessage("iPrintVerKit")+"

    Plenty of options out there, maybe just not in your budget. SAS Expander is likely whats driving the price up.
