How long would 58 Tb last you?

post #1 of 119
Thread Starter 
I am building a media server and it will have 32 2Tb drives in it in raid 6 with one hot swap. I know it wont be a full 58Tb but I didn't want to do the math =] So anyways How long do you think this kind of set up would last you? I am hoping it will last 10 years until I need to build a new one =]

Maybe like 20 lifetimes? I have never used more than 200GB of drive space in my life. This includes back-ups.

post #5 of 119
my god... i have no idea. I have only 1tb in my computer at the moment, but i plan on doing a 2tb raid 0 sooner or later. i would say 58tb would last me a while. It depends on what im doing though, like if i all off a sudden get an feeling i need to rip 100's of blue ray movies, then i cant see it lasting that long.

It is going to be a media server and I will be ripping lots of blu-rays =] so we will see, but I just don't like the fact that I will have to spend over $1000 just for drives.

If you're going to put like all of your genetic data on there about four times then it'll fill up quick. Otherwise, I imagine it will last around ten years like you want.
