Can this device be connected directly to a MacPro Server? Whats the difference between this and the RAID unit?

    This one doesn't have any RAID controller and is merely connections to 16 individual disks. When connected to a Vtrak E-Class RAID unit, it appears as 16 extra drives available to the RAID unit. (e.g. Drives 17 through 32). The expansion chassis does not have the Fibre Channel connections necessary for the Mac to communicate with it.
