Pinned topic 6Gbps SSD in DS3500

‏2014-05-28T14:45:36Z |

Hello All, 

I need to add SSDs in an EXP3524 storage shelf connected to a DS3500. 

In it's infinite wizdom, IBM has decided to retire the 3Gbps SSDs, with no replacement available. 

The 6Gbps SSDs, part number 49Y6072, are shown as compatible only with the EXP2524. Since EXP2524 and 3524 are basically identical, should there be any issue with using 49Y6072 SSDs in the EXP3524? 

Or better yet, has anyone tried any non IBM SSDs in DS3500? I believe Toshiba makes the SSDs for IBM, right?
