I thought it was just a China thing - but when checking the 1955
prices state side - the limit too is 73GB 2.5INCH SAS drives.
When I was first scoping the 1955 before I am pretty sure I saw at
least 146GB option (4 months ago) and settled for a RAID 1 with 2 x
73GB in our first blades as they were ordered right after the unit
However the processing power of those new core2 dual core chips is
amazing. And now I find my limit being disk size to put all the VM's
on that I want. Sorry no SAN - waaaaay too expensive for us at this
point in time and I like local storage as it partitions the problems
so that there is no SPOF in say an NFS or dodgy cheap SAN/NAS route...
Will Dell sell 146GB 2.% inch SAS drives sometime? Soon I hope?
