I used the below link from IBM knowledge center and also from the latest IBM Power Systems feature new I/O enhancement,, 113-171, dated October 7, 2013

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/POWER7/p7ecs/p7ecsparts_drives.htm?cp=POWER7%2F1-4-6-3-0-0

I do understand that P7 and P8 system units use different disks, but for the 5887 EXP24S, the drives would be the same, is this correct?
My other question is do you think IBM will be announcing larger disks for 5887 EXP24S, since the latest IO announcement is 15 months old?

From Table 3, I arrived at these results, for IBM i

59C2 00E8709* 775 GB small form factor solid-state SAS drive
59CC 00E8683* 571 GB 15K small form factor SAS disk drive (IBM i)
59CD 00E8623* 1.14 TB 10K small form factor SAS disk drive (IBM i)

Best way to get this information in my opinion is not the knowledge center, but using the System Planning Tool (SPT). Then you can literally build this machine and see where cards can go, what draws would be supported based upon machine and OS, and then what disks can do into various types of draws.

What are the largest DASD sizes available for a 5887 EXP24S I/O drawer?
SSD
15K spinny
10K spinny

Are there any other internal IO options available?

Thank You
