"...the isis 7000 say it comes with 2 switch connectivity the Iss2000, which has (8) 1g ethernet connections and 1 10g connection.

So does this mean that you have the capacity to connect 16 direct connected clients via the 1g Ethernet and 2 clients via the 10g?"

ISIS 7000 is always configured with dual VLANS (lets say and, you would dual-connect clients (1 connection to the .10 VLAN and 1 connection to the .20 VLAN)for redundancy. You could, in theory, single connect all your clients, but they would be segregated between VLANs. I don't recall if the 10Gb port can be used simultaneously with the 1Gb ports. If I recall correctly, on your 1st engine you will lose 1 port on each ISS blade to connect to the ISIS system director.

"Also if you are going to expand the capacity of the isis you need to purchase more Chassis/engines not just the ISBs right?"

Yes. The ISIS Engine (Chassis) is just an enclosure with power supplies and out-of-band hardware monitoring. You need to populate each engine with ISBs
for storage AND either ISS or ISX switch blades for connectivity. To expand beyond 2 engines, you will need to add an engine with ISX blades. 1 Engine with ISX blades supports up to a 12 engine stack.
