Self built or pre-built?  If the latter, you can use our delta V units 
as this: http://www.scalableinformatics.com/delta-v .  JBOD over iSCSI 
or similar.  We software RAID them by default, though there is no reason 
we couldn't have many iSCSI targets over 10GbE/IB/ethernet.

You don't see it there, but there is a DV5 ... 48 bay top load.  The 
unit you pointed to has the unfortunate problem of requiring you take 
two devices out to get at one failed drive.
