The company where I work has started to run out of disk space at 2.3TB. Originally it was a JBOD of a 1.5TB drive and a 1TB drive as a quick fix measure (yes I know this is bad, that's why I'm working out something better).
There isn't a need for blistering fast speed as this is all just for network shares.
I'm aiming for 6 x 1TB drives in a RAID 5, there will not be a database on here so RAID5 will be fine.
The problem is that I have well and truly run out of slots and ports to plug more HDD's into. I'm happy to get a SAS/RAID card if necessary.
I was thinking of getting an iSCSI bay but appears to be a very, very expensive measure.
Does anyone have any Suggestions on how to plug in many more drives into a server cheaply?
