You are only limited to the number of available SBUS slots.

If you go to Sun's web site and look up the product specifications for the
SSA and/or the Ultra, there is a chart that displays how many can be put on
the machine.

Without looking, I think that you can only have 2 SSA model 1xx or a single
SSA model 2xx or 2xxx.
