EMC CX3-40 Drive Replacement In Pictures

So I have been really busy lately and haven’t had time to post almost anything. We had a lot of 73gig drives in our older CX3-40.  They were there for spindle count (15krpm x 60 disks).  We needed the throughput not space back when this system was built a few years ago.

Since then I have installed a RamSan for the Oracle environment at this datacenter and have no need for a lot of tiny drives.  So we replaced them with 600gig 10kRPM drives to be used in our VMware environment and RecoverPoint systems.  How about some EMC drive replacement pics until I can get some more content available?

Funny thing is that I forgot to take pictures of the drives once installed.  Might add them next trip/
