There's also the RAID striping (on SAS drives anyway) being spread across
more drives.

And do you want to buy a separate 5887 (and cards) to support your ASP2
versus sharing the same hardware?

And if ASP 1 is full and ASP 2 is only at 50% you would need to add disks
to asp 1 when your system actually has plenty of physical space.
It's these islands of wasted space that really discourages me from using
multiple ASPs.
