I'm at the limit of my storage right now of 8TB plus the backup window
of that 8TB using 2 LTO2 drives in a loader.

We need to be somewhere around 16-20TB today based on stuff I have moved
off to external drives and future growth.

I'm seeing quotes of over 100 grand for various solutions from the big

Anyone want to chime in? I mean you can build a cheap san, the question
is then, what's the best way to back it up where you can meet that
backup in a weekend window?

Out current 8TB is a SATA unit so I don't need SAS drives.
