That's an insane amount of storage space! You planning to do a public FTP here or something?

He is giving us all FREE LIFETIME HOSTING. All that is required is a POUTINE FTW shirt.

I haven't done the $/GB math on a range of drives in a while, because frankly there's only a very small subset of drives that interest me. Basically all Seagates, WD GP, Samsung, and all "odd" sizes (750GB/1.5TB etc) are out.
So I'm literally left with Deathstar and WD Black/Blue.
Blacks are obviously the most expensive and Blues aren't even available in large sizes. Deathstar is looking REALLY attractive, and their $/GB for 2TB really isn't bad. And it's only roughly $10 more than 2TB GP.

RAID6 with 1 hot spare.

That's the beauty of XFS and LVM. This Phase gets 1TB blacks. Phase 2 will get 2TB Deathstars. Phase 3 will probably get 2 (or 4 if they're out)TB deathstars.
LVM allows me to link 2 (or more) mounts together and XFS allows me to live grow a partition.

Someone mentioned this on NCIX. Some day we'll look back and say "Pfft. 100TB." But by that time I'll have a 10PB RAID.

I can't dispute that. You've seen Hoarders IRL, I'm literally the definition of an E-Hoarder.

Who says there's not.
Actually... that's not true. pr0n won't be on this server. $/GB is too much.
That job goes to nonredundant storage.

What's FTP?
OpenVPN and Samba > FTP

Actually... since I'm moving to Novus and getting 100/100 I could do free hosting.

I always thought you were insane. Now I have an idea just how insane you really are.

That is a very nice setup though. I wish I had the money and could justify it.

Why don't I need 100TB?
Hell... I've been live a couple days and I'm already pushing 1/3 full. And I haven't even started looking for HDDs yet.

As for pics, all I have is a Picasa link above.

I do run a bunch of websites. But those use squat for data. It's more bandwidth.
And I don't watch Movies much. Mostly TV.
