Seconded. Also you can chain a couple of MD1000s at the back of the
MD3000 to get even more storage over SAS. We have a number of those
with the upstream OS installed but usually a single MD3000 is enough
for what we use them for (mainly Oracle DB server or VMWare hosts). We
tend to split the storage between two nodes and then do OCFS2.
