If you are asking me, then there is no external direct attach storage. 
HQ (Bradbury School is an ESF school) provided the thing and it has two 
disks in mirror mode for a db and four disks in raid5 mode for system 
and the vle (customized moodle) with a 512 MB BBU module for the P410i 
controller. They added a 4-port Intel Gigabit adapter too but that is of 
no consequence with storage right now.
