Practically speaking though, you are limited by what exists in the
marketplace (300 gigs, very expensive).
There has been talk from time to time about making a 1" IDE or SATA to
1.6" SCSI carrier based on an Acard chip. But I don't believe that
anyone has ever gone through with the idea, and that won't work in a 1U
Sun anyhow. It still would be a wildly cool project for someone to do,
but I doubt it would be affordable.
I'm sure there is some maximum limit though. Is it 2TB perhaps?
I'm guessing that the limit is 2^32 * sector size.
