Use HP Drives instead of Cisco drives?

Hi there! I have a client that is, perhaps rightfully so, pushing back against paying Cisco's price for hard drives for their WAE-512. The MSRP is like $1300 for a 250G SATA drive, so even with discounts the price is still pretty outrageous.

The question is... can they just buy the equivalent HP hard drives and use those instead?

Hi Rick,

We do not support the use of unapproved hardware components in the WAE platforms.
