Could I use a Empty formely SAS Disk DS4243 Shelf for SSD?

Hi All, Quick Question

We got a new hafl populated SAS Disk Shelf DS4243, then We passed the 12 disks to other Disk shelves

Now the customer want 9 units of 100GB SSDs

Can I use this empty shelf?

Thanks,

Mauricio

If the shelf is completely empty (SSD shelves must be isolated) you should be able to use it as a new SSD shelf.  Keep in mind that you'll want to add it as a new stack on a controller which only serves out SAS & SSD disk.  This will ensure that CP commits are not hindered by slower disk on the back end.  The outstanding question would be whether NetApp sells just the disk.
