Hi There!

Datastor (Westcon) used to be the place to buy bare drives that met this spec, but it seems none of our regular suppliers do it? 

Anyone know of any who might have 10K or 15K Drives brand new (Distributor)

PM me if confidential. 

Thanks for the assistance.

When I saw your subject line I was getting ready to type Datastor as an answer...  but I guess now.

Something wrong with the options at Ingram?  Quick search below.,Ntk:Products,Ntt:sas

Ascent? Is there such a think as an SAS SSD? Miles faster than spinning disks, obviously.

Yah Enterprise SSD's to go into name brand servers are VERY expensive and far better than prosumer SSD's. Overkill for this situation.
