Can Vtrak x30 Series connect directly to Mac Pros without fibre switch ?
PROMISE VTrak x30 Series 48TB (16 by 3TB SAS) 3U RAID Subsystem have 8 fibre connection in the back.
We intend to use it for a 7 Mac Pros system.
Can we connect it directly to 7 Mac Pros or we have to use a fibre switch ?
Does any body have experience on this ?

You could connect it to 4 Mac Pros without a switch. Each Mac Pro must have a Fibre Channel connection to both halves of the Vtrak: one cable should go to Controller 1, and one cable to Controller 2. If you would like to connect more than 4 host computers, a fibre switch must be used. --Joe, Promise Technology, 408-228-1500
