I always wondered if SGI had a department whose only mission in life was to design drive sleds.

Other vendors (like Sun) have things like that too

To be fair it does use SCA SCSI drives, but they are installed on a little metal tray that slides into the drive bay. Of course the RAM is completely weird..R-ten-K wrote:Are you kidding? Only SGI would make a PeeCee completely propietary.
In contrast, I have used the same SUN drive sleds in an Ultra2, Ultra60, Blade1000, Ultra20, and in a brand new storagearray... for SCSI/SCA, FC, and SATA drives.

No, IBM pulled the same stunt with some of their x86 servers. There are at least two variations on that black-with-slats drive sled that look almost identical but in fact, they're about .125" different in height. Thanks, IBM. Great job.
