What is a chassi?

HI Guys,

New to NetApp and I have a question about Chassis...

I understand what it means when we say "controllers" and "IOXM" but what is a chassi?

for example, a FAS3240E means that it is one controller and one IOXM in a single "chassi"... FAS3240A means 2 controllers in a single chassi... 2X 3240E means two 3240 with IOXM but requires "two chassis"...

can someone also shed light on when it will be necessary to have IOXMs?

Hi Max,

Welcome to the NetApp Community! Here is a good article on FAS3200, it offers an illustration that might help you understand the terminology.
