new HP MSA 2000 config recomendation

Hi Folks

I have 2 HP MSA 2000fc storage arrays (12 disks in each). They are  daisy chained together with unit 0 connecting to a fibre controller.

I need to expand my storage and am considering a new msa 2000fc.

Would the best config be to extend the daisychain and hang the third unit of the back of the  existing second (unit 1).

Or it would it be best to connect it directly to the fibre channel switch.

TIA
Jo

One of your units has fibre channel RAID controllers in it and costs about $3000 more than the other one which is just a dumb shelf, I'd add another shelf since it supports 3 additional enclosures and you only have one so far.
