is it possible to fit  2x   2,5 inch (upto 9,5mm)  drives into 1 slim-odd slot? and how? maybe new idea for schoondoggy for modification?

 

i am a new owner of the gen8-device. totally newbie with it. i would like to make an multi-TB device of it as many as could sdd or hdd drives.

 

@schoondoggy    do you send rev4 brackets internationally (to Holland)? and possibility to pay by credic card (because i dont have and i dont like paypal) ?

Yes I do ship international, but it is very expensive. It is a flat rate per box and I can fit four brackets in a box, so if you have others near you that need brackets that can save you money. Sorry, I am not setup to take credit cards.

With drive choices, Seagate has 5TB 2.5 inch 15mm drives. You could put two of them on a SDM R4 and put SSDs in the ODD bay.

how much should be the sending price to holland in 1 box? what i need is brackets to attach 4x    2,5inch hard drives (SSD or normal HDD upto 9mm thick, no 15mm thick hdd). so i need 1SDM Rev4 bracket with 2 SSB of the extra attachers. and is the set including the fan for extra cooling raid-controller?

 

and my another question...there is no possbility to put / to fit 2x  2,5inch drives into slim-odd?

I had 2x 2.5" SSD's in the blank space under the ODD slot as I was actually using the ODD, if you tweak the wirings around a bit its easy enough to do..

nice option, as i can see at my gen8-device the only way to put 2,5inch hdd under the slim-odd space is firstly removing backplane, then sliding the 2x  2,5inch disks. but how to fasten them to the unit / device? tire-wraps? do you have any picture of your setup with your suggested option? just to seet how you did it

 

cable rerouting is not a big deal

Yeah that's the stuff, I could have used velcro or similar but I didn't have any, and when I say gone, I sold it, not it died...

International shipping is $35.

There is room in the ODD bay for two 2.5 inch 9.5mm drives. Some double sided tape should hold them in place.

I'm over in the US again this Christmas, while I dont have a Gen8 anymore I could possibly bring some back with me, as long as I remember to carry them on this time, putting them in my luggage resulted in a broken lock and a nice note from customs lol

I have thirty (30) SDM-MSG8-R4 brackets left in stock. As production has ended on the HPE MicroServer Gen8, I will not be making any more of these. If you want/need one, you should order it now.
