SGI IS4600 unboxing

We recently purchased an additional IS-4600 disk array from SGI filled to the brim with 2TB SATA disks. Once we build all th LUNs (8+2 raid 6) we will end up with an additional (usable) 680 TB of disk.
This beast can handle an aggregate 6.4GB/s of I/O and can sustain 175K read (45K write) IOP/s from (to) the backend disk (not that we could ever get to that number with SATA).

I took some pictures during the unpacking that I thought I would share…
