With the combination of various Disk Arrays, as many as twenty one 3.5" drives can be installed into the Storage Tower XIII. By connecting the drives to multiple Port Multipliers (available in 6G version), as many as twenty hard drives drives can be connected to the system with a single mini SAS cable, or four eSATA cables using the Storage Tower XIII. This is just one of the configuration examples. There are practically endless customization possibilities in combining 3.5" or 2.5" SATA or IDE hard drives with various RAID capability. You can actually consolidate all the storage into one Storage Tower and use it as a storage server for multiple systems
