Tape drive bays None.
Network interfaces Integrated 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports, plus 2 ports on optional Gigabit Ethernet with Ethernet Daughter Card (does not consume PCI slot).
PCI Expansion slots Up to 3 slots (up to 2 standard slots are available; one slot is dedicated to RAID controller), dependant on the riser cards used. Standard models have:
  • Slot 1: PCI Express 2.0 x16, Low-profile
  • Slot 2: PCI Express 2.0 x16, full-height, half-length
Each slot is implemented using a riser card. Each PCIe riser card can be replaced with a PCI-X riser card offering one PCI-X 64-bit/133 MHz slot.
