Why is it "monstrously expensive"? Enterprise grade 4TB drives are around $400 each, so that's around $16,000 for 40 of them...hardly "monstrously expensive". A 128TB SAN that's ready to go costs around $70k, which is less than a lot of servers cost.

Everything's relative. $70k isn't terribly much for the company I work for, but it's a hell of a lot for me...
