I saw that as well (storagemojo blog). Looks interesting but I need to read the pdf since there are some pieces I'm missing.

Cool concept. There are some others like it as well - low performance storage but lots of capacity ("cheap and deep"). I think it can make alot of sense in my situations (just my 2 cents).

Kinda neat -- how does the price compare to the various 48-drive
systems available?
