Open-source hardware design for a 67 TB array for $7867

Backblaze: cheap cloud server storage

Online backup startup BackBlaze, disgusted with the outrageously overpriced offerings from EMC, Sun, and the like, has released an open-source hardware design showing you how to build a 4U, RAID-capable rack-mounted, Linux-based server using commodity parts that contains 67 terabytes at a material cost of $7,867. It’s open-source hardware! Their blog states: “Our hope is that by sharing, others can benefit and, ultimately, refine this concept and send improvements back to us.”
