Default Enterprise Storage SAN Array parts [USCSI raid, fiber, controllers, 84 hdd's]

Hello folks, here's a long shot, hoping someone here needs something of this caliber, or is crazy enough to have the most intense consumer raid setup on the planet.

For sale are the following:

Quote:

6x Compaq StorageWorks 14 BAY storage enclosure, model EK1502 p/n 70-40019-01 || These beasts have a dual Ultra3 wide SCSI controller and an FB controller each. Both have the standard power supplies with massive fans on the back. Each bay comes with 14 caddies, each with one of the harddrives listed below. As seen here.
TESTED and WORKING. I'd like $50 each, or $125 with all 14 hardrives. $200 for all 6 empty (w/ caddies) or $400 for all 6 with all 84 hardrives.

1x Compaq StorageWorks MA2200 Controller Shelf: Comes with 2x HSx80 cache bays, 512mb each (maxed), 1x HSg80 FC fibre channel array controller with V8.71f firmware card, and 2 180w psu's. Again, maxed. Was used to conglomerate the aforementioned 6 bays (84 15krpm hdd's) into one giant raid array. This is a 2GB bandwidth aggregate unit. Would take you a dozen ssd's to match it ;) P/N: DS-SE2ZS-C8 || $100 takes her.

1x StorageWorks Fibre Channel SAN Switch/16 controller. Still being manufactured. Here's a manual / specsheet. Managed the aforementioned setup flawlessly. $75 takes it.

** SOLD **

84x 18.2GB 15000 RPM harddrives. Most are Compaq brand, but there are a few HP replacements, manufactured in late 2004. ALL drives tested, working. $7.50 / drive, $50 for 10 drives, $100 for 25 drives, $250 for all 84. Just imagine the bandwidth in raid0 or 5...

** 9 drives sold; 73 remain. **

1x Emulex fiber controller board; fits a server-size pci slot. This was later used to pair the behemoth described above to a single server. Not sure if it'll work in a regular pci slot, but i know there are cards that do. $35, free with purchase of setup.

3x Fibre cables, doubles. Terminated properly, tested working. 2 connect the raid controller to the san switch, 1 from san switch to controller card as output. Roughly 1m each. $20 each, free with purchase of setup.

** 2 cables sold, one remains **

6x Wide USCSI cables, used to connect the raid controller to each of the 6 storage bays. $5 each, free with purchase of controller.

Last but not least, and unknown uscsi controller. Seems to be pretty recent, pulled from a p4 dual Xeon server. Has 2 external connectors, FITS the uscsi cables from the storage bays . $25.

** SOLD **

First one with $500 in cash can take the WHOLE lot. Combo prices possible if parting.

Now remember folks, ALL PRICES ARE OBO - "Or Best Offer". The above setup is guaranteed to work together, and work well at that. It ran several virtual arrays, but in a 0+1 setup this beast will outdo a dozen ssd's strapped to a beast of a controller in performance, at a very small fraction of the cost.

Pictures of EVERYTHING are right over here.

Local pickup is a must - this is simply too bulky and heavy to ship (several hundred pounds).
The pickup may be made at a location in Mississauga. Delivery options possible in the GTA.

Tons of heatware and itrader around here, paypal verified address - bid with confidence.

Cheers and happy buying !

Big resolution, long way to the right. And I'm blind.

Also, that's unfortunate. I'm a bit far for this :(

That it is. Just needs a home now. I thought i would have the time and the application for this. Guess not.

You could start your own hosting service with this lol... Enough to keep several dozen sites going fulltime.
