Joshua,
We use Storcase on one of our FEM clusters.
http://www.storcase.com/rm_raid/rm_raid_ovrvw.asp

Serial management and environment monitoring; connected to the I/O server
via U320

For the other cluster we went with an integrated I/O & storage array
http://www.asaservers.com/system_dept.asp?dept_id=SD-052

Cant complain about either one.

Subject: [Beowulf] Looking for external RAID vendors

I'm looking to get a few TB of SATA-SCSI storage, and I'm wondering what
vendors folks like for this sort of thing.  I know all about the tradeoffs 
of external RAID vs. internal arrays -- this is something that needs to be 
as plug-and-play as possible.

Some groups here like Excel Meridian's products (which do look rather 
nice).  Any other vendors with good products and support?

Thanks.
