Storage options for Fujitsu Futro S900

Hardware Jan 03, 2021

If you are interested in using this machine as a server, you might look for a way to increase the disk size, since it usually comes equipped with a 2 GB disk.

The easiest way to upgrade is by using an MSATA SSD. I tested this one: Dogfish MSATA SSD 120GB. It has TRIM, S.M.A.R.T., ECC, and bad block detection. Comes with a 3 years warranty and the performance is good enough for the S900 (around 500 MB/s). No cables, low power, and plug&play.

But if you already have a 2.5" SATA drive, then know that you have the option to add it to your S900. You need a SATA cable (easy) but for the power, you'll need an adapter from floppy drive to SATA that looks like this:

It's not the cheapest at 8€ (for a pack of two), but if you already have the disk then it is less expensive than buying the MSATA SSD.

Here's the layout of the motherboard.

Since there's no place like 127.0.0.1, I try my best to keep it up to date and add network services using various (mostly old and cheap) network devices.
