Expanding FreeNAS Beyond a Single Chassis - Using HBAs with external SAS ports to scale your FreeNAS system

These videos cover how I expanded my FreeNAS system into a second chassis and some of the challenges faced during such an expansion. The basic idea is pretty simple and could be implemented in just about any storage system for a pretty reasonable cost.
