Yeah, and even 3 x 2TB would be enough for now AFAIK.

Good, so we can save some money and spend it on a real build node instead.

BTW, I was previewed a new Intel Server yesterday.

it had 2 separate servers crammed into 1U server.

both servers had dual socket and 4 x 2.5" disks each :)
and they share a redundant PSU setup ...

(so pretty much what you can get as blade servers)

I'm just waiting for more specs and price :)
