Need lots of inexpensive but reliable storage space (approx. $100 per
terabyte)? Check out this "open source" engineering:
Touted by ZDNet saying, "Raw disk cost is only 5-10% of an enterprise RAID
system’s cost. The rest goes for corporate jets, sales commissions,
tradeshows, sheetmetal, 2 Intel x86 mobos, obscene profits and some pale and
blinking engineers in a windowless lab who make it work."
The only point warranting criticism visible to me is the use of linux for
the OS, but substituting FreeBSD should be no problem, eh?
