How much more storage do you need Chuck ? If another 8GB will do, then get two more of the 6607's (which will have to be obtained used now - and IBM is one of the sources for used hardware too), but will be covered under your maintenance agreement once installed). Assuming you have RAID active on the 2726, you can then stop & restart device parity protection to spread the parity striping over all 8 disks, instead of just the first 4, for better performance.

We need to add more disk and have been quoted for 4 of the 8.58GB drives... I am CLULELESS on how this sets up. We have the 2726 Disk Storage Controller and that is what the disk and the optical (CD) are on. Is this (adding these drives) going to create a problem ? We need more storage but is this going to hurt performance ? Thanks !
