NetApp 2220/2240 and Tape Library Connectivi
2013-10-24 12:36 AM
Our company are looking to introduce a few 2200 series units and would like to use existing Overland NEO100S (IBM) tape backup units for direct connection to the filer. From what I can see the interfaces for SAS on the filer and SAS on the tape unit are different (smaller on the tape unit) can anyone confirm if there is any type of convertor/cable that would allow the connection? If it helps I believe the units we will be using will be running 7-modè software.We were hoping to use Snap Protect to manage the whole process too.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

X6543a-R6 is listed as a 2m QSFP+ to MINISAS cable on HW universe, this is the required cable for miniSAS to QSFP+
There are two options, 2M and 5M
