you might be able to use
an adapter to the SFF-8088 external 4 lane SAS connector, which may
increase your options.
So what you are saying is that something like this will do the trick?
If I interpret this correctly I get a SFF-8087 to SFF-8088 bracket,
connect the 4 port LSI SFF-8077 to that bracket, then get a cable for
this JBOD and throw in 4 drives? This would leave me with four
additional HDDs without any SAS expander hassle. I had not come across
these JBODs. Thanks a million for the hint.
I have 2 Sans Digital TR8X JBOD enclosures, and they work very well.
They also make a 4-bay TR4X.
They cost a bit more than the one you linked to, but the drives are hot
swap. They also make similar cases with port multipliers, RAID, etc.,
but I've only used the JBOD.
