23.4375 terabytes in a box (Sun Fire X4500)

A box arrived from Sun the other day. We slid back the cover, and were amazed to see 48 – 500 Gig drives all nicely sitting in their little hot-swap bays. The Sun Fire X4500 box is pretty cool – 4 rack-units high, with dual core AMD CPU’s, 4 gigabit Ethernet ports, lots of slots, and LOTS OF DISK STORAGE. All for $1.5 per gig.

Apparently, this box is pretty popular with the porn sites.

Me, I’m thinking I could upload about 6.3 million MP3’s, or quite a lot of videos…

Or, I guess we could hold out for the 48 terabyte version…
