If you take the Bezel off the front you should see drive bays. You put addtional drives or large drives in those bays.
You then need to add the storage to your raid array or create a new raid array.
Then in your OS (if it is windows) you need to create a partition on the volume on the raid array.
Hope this helps.

Certain, if you have a SAN than your storage will be on their, are you hoping to do this alone?
