    So I am still looking for a few SC216's and have a hard time in Europe. Found some in the US but shipping is like $100 ea, so kinda prohibitive...

    Main reason for the CSE216 is that i got a bunch of SAS3-EL2 backplanes that I'd like to use ... so i thought whether it would be possible to switch out backplanes with another server, eg those relatively cheap Quanta here... Quanta D51B-2U 24x 2.5 (SFF)

    Or maybe a cheap Netapp 2246 like this one...

    NetApp DS2246 24x 2,5" HDD-Schächte 24x Leerrahmen 2x SAS I/O Modul 2x PSU Rails | eBay

    No idea whether that could work, and while its probably nice to have a nice cheap Netapp I thought I'd ask before spending more money on wild goose chases...
