    External Rack Mounted SCSI Hard Disk Enclosure

    Can anyone recommend a rack mounted SCSI hard drive enclosure to me? I've been searching and can only find a 14 drive HP one and a 14 drive Dell one. Both cost in the region of £1300 which is a tad excessive I feel.

    It doesn't need to have 14 drives. Seven would do fine. Ta

    These things don't appear to be cheap.

    what do you actually need this for? Adding more HDDs to the server or creating a NAS?

    Doesn't necessarily have to be cheap, just less than £1300
