Storage

Can I add SAN storage to an existing server?

If your existing server is a Mac Pro running VMware and you wish to add SAN storage, this is possible. We’ll need to take the server offline for a short period to present fibre channel connectivity to it. There is no additional labor cost when adding SAN at a later date. Available add-ons for your server are accessible within your customer dashboard under the Add-Ons tab within the details of your subscription(s).

If you have a Mac Pro server running an operating system on bare metal (macOS, for example), we can’t provision SAN storage for it. Due to the configuration and storage type, the operating system is unable to connect to and manage SAN storage.
