The FS3017 arrived in its retail packaging, a large brown box with a sticker affixed to the top right. This sticker carries a good deal of information about the platform including its 10Gbe capabilities, USB ports, and warranty.

The scope of delivery includes both power cables and a host of drive screws.

The front of the unit houses all 24 bays, and the left side houses the power button and alarm mute.

The rear of the unit start with a COM port to the left followed by both USB 3.0 ports and 10Gbe ports.

The far-left side of the platform houses the redundant power supplies stacked. Each unit is capable of 800w.

The four 80mm fans are made by Sans Ace and push about 60 CFM a piece.

Opening up the FS3017, we have the power supplies to the far left followed by a shroud covering both heat sinks and memory slots. To the far right, we have a line of HBA's connected to the 24-drive backplane.

Each of the HBAs is a 12Gb/s SAS capable solution and is numbered.

Each appears to be a LSI 9300-8i.
