Hi Nate,

In some countries those storage arrays are about 3 more expensive, so
it's cheaper to build it yourself with PC / server components. I'm
actually interested in such a setup as well, and would like to cluster
2x machines to give a network RAID setup. What would you recommend
using? The idea is to serve to servers which will be clustered as
well, hosting web hosting Virtual Private Servers.
