The MSA1000 combines the array controller shelf and the drive shelf, which holds up to fourteen 1" universal disk drives in a single 4U rack mount cabinet. More storage can be easily deployed with the addition of up to two StorageWorks 4314 or 4214 Enclosures for a maximum storage capacity of 3TB when using 72 GB drives.
The MSA1000 provides the latest 2Gb Fibre Channel technology to the hosts. Besides the single port 2Gb Fibre Channel I/O module that comes standard, there is an optional 6-port, 2Gb Fibre Channel fabric switch that fits inside the MSA1000. The MSA1000 can be remotely managed by using management tools such as Compaq Insight Manager XE, Array Configuration Utility XE and the StorageWorks Fabric Switch Management Utility.
