No mention of tape, or really anything affordable but still a neat look at high end long term storage solutions.

There is also no mention of DIY, or any of the other inasane 4u server options. like the 24drive norco options ive seen in the server section of overclock.net. This also fails to ask any of the question necessisary before setting anything up: Short term/mid term/longt term? Small budget/mid budget/large budget? How much redundency do you need? How skilled are you in IT? How skilled would you like to be in IT? What sort of access do you need? Is it going to be just for storage? Are there any other infrastructure dependencies?

I've been thinking a large amount about all of this, because ive been looking to re-do my current network, and want to get it to cover the most of my needs as possible Edit: I also want to add that most of these off the shelf raid boxes, use refurbished drives to lower costs, and as such increases failure rates.

I completely agree with you, though they did mention long term storage as their goal. Like I said interesting look at some high end disk based solutions. Personally I think a NAS with a RAID configuration on my LAN with offsite tape storage for archived stuff will be great. Right now I simply use NAS + Bluray and it's time consuming and I'm one home disaster away from losing everything.
