The FLX240 is a full, end-to-end 2-gigabit Fibre Channel storage solution that supports all major Windows and UNIX environments. The Sun FLX240 storage system is available in two configuration options. The drive-limited FLX240 offers superior value for limited budgets to serve remote office locations or file and print servers. It supports a maximum of 14 FC drives. The fully expandable FLX240 is the right choice for smaller database environments or e-mail servers. It can support up to 14 integrated FC drives as well as 7 additional arrays — in any combination of FC and SATA devices.
