Anyone paying those rates for a few 10's of TB of storage is being taken
to the cleaners.
Without having this become a commercial, for maginally more than 1/10th
of that, you can have 96TB (80-ish TB usable) in one of our JackRabbit
Yeah, I know. 6 year old technology versus modern technology. We can
sink/source that TB of data IO in well under an hour. And deliver it
over IB, 10GbE, etc.
Stopping so this doesn't become a commercial.
