i don't suppose anyone still has a Dell 4350 (circa 1998) server with
working SCSI 80pin SCA hard drive connectors? Have plenty of 80pin
SCA machines but behind RAID controllers that want to see Raid0, not
individual disks. i used it as file storage for too long because it
was FAST and always available. Files were not mission critical and too
big to backup, such as media files and hard drive images. Had started
to move to new machines, but 2008r2 SMB2 can be extremely slow when
talking to a SMB1 machine. The hard drives are fine, but one of the
Adaptec controllers on Motherboard started leaking fluid.
These are 8~10inch tall rack mountable with a deep depth and very
large bay that can be opened from top. Pic attached.
