Actually Mark..I just did an HP DL320 (the system I believe you were 
talking about) with 9TB (12x750 SATA) for a client for under $8K. 
This include $400 or so for three years of on site services, before 
requesting any additional (special) discount. So your $11K estimate 
is more than a bit high.
