Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

personally speaking cloud storage is just meaningless specially for the SMB businesses.
today you can have a 24TB of unified storage with 12GB dual HA controller from nettap (FAS 2240-4) for less than 20k!!!. with 3 years warranty.
so in dividing that by 3 that’s around 7k per year.
you tell me how much per year will it cost you to host 24TB in this so called cloud storage.
