I am looking for some industry standards on what the average cost per GB or TB is for SAN attached storage. Does anyone know where I can find these numbers?

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

Each vendor will have different prices. It will also depend on the size of the disks. For 73 Gig spindles the cost per Gig will be higher than if you purchase 1TB spindles.

For example the EMC storage that I just purcahsed:
FC 173 Gig spindles ~ $6 / Gig
FC 400 Gig spindles ~ $3 / Gig
SATA 1 TB spindles ~ $1.50 / Gig

It will also depend on how large your order. Larger orders will get you a better discount than smaller orders will.
