Well I've found very little information about it, but keep in mind
that these boxes can connect to dozens of processors and hundreds of
disk drives. No lunchbox-sized device is going to control tens of
terabytes of disk with automated, online backup to connected tape
libraries and all that shit. Also I believe the RVA cabinet does have
some space for drives as well.
Here's one...no in-depth tech info though. :-(
