Thanks but I don't think that answers the question, I think that as the NS-480 can take 480 drives and has 4 x 4GbE FC buses that you can do 8 x 115 drive shelves per bus?
To be honest the NS-480 was a bit before my time and I tend to let CXP do the hard work when it comes to upgrades.
Can you remind me what the options are?
Cabling on the CX4 depends very much on what you already have and where its located – I would suggest to work with your partner TC or customer service contact for the site.
They can tell you exactly what is possible in terms of upgrades and what is needed to order to fit your config
I think there is also a forum for partners here on the ECN platform
