This depends on how reliable you require a system to be. The new
Adaptec 3130 allows hot swap and warm swap of normal drives on a
SCSI chain. And 9 GB drives are 1500-2000, depending. You could
build a HUGE system for $30,000. Of course, I think Gregory's orignal
message was meant to say that most people don't need that much
horsepower. Some do, most don't.

If you need a lot of disk and no downtime, you can easily spend that

 Sun Ultra 1, 256M w/ extra boot disk, quantity 2 $14,000
 Box Hill RAID Box 5300 Turbo w/ dual controllers, 24G disk $30,000
                                                           US $44,000
