Storage backplane - recommendations

 Share

Hi,

I'm currently building a NAS in a server chassis that I have no clue what it is but It looks as though I have enough room for a 60 drive backplane.

 

Does anyone have any recommendations of where I can get one and recommendations of backplanes I could look at?

Normal rackmount, so roughly 70cm 44 cm 18 cm (D x W x H) is what I have to work with.

Are you making your own case? Id probably just get a premade case here unless you want to put a lot of work into building this.

 

Is this a specific model case your using? Normally it has spots for a few specific backplanes.

I don’t think there is such a thing as a backplane for 60 drives…. 4U’s support 24 drives in the front. The only way to get 60 is have A FAT case which I doubt exists, or the drives slot in vertically which usually will be wired individually to each drive.
