Additional SSDs in Gen8 case

Recommended Posts

juan9999

I have a Gen8 that I'm planning on using as a NAS.

I have set it up to boot ESXi from the internal USB, and use currently have an SSD mounted in the drive bay slot via the Sata 2.0 optical connector (so half speed) that I use as the ESXi data store).

 

I'd like to be able to:

- add two additional SSDs that would be available to the NAS 

- migrate the current SSD to data 3.0 to get full speed

 

1. Is this possible? If so how? Can I use a card like the P222 to add another additional internal 4 SATA connectors? Do I have to flash it in IT mode? How do I do that?

2. Can I fit this all in the same case? Where can I get power?

3. If I can't fit it in the case, can I use an external caddy for the SSDs? How can I do this?

4. My Gen8 came with an optical drive- where can I get a cover for the Gen8 slot so that I can remove the drive? I have a 3d printer, is there an existing design?

 

Thanks for your thoughts!

Are you running the MS Gen8 as AHCI or B120i?

What NAS OS are you planning to use?
