I saw a total-cost-of-ownership from our datacenters that was like 
$40/megabyte for NetApp filers.    this was considerably higher than the 
large scale EMC SAN (which also has proactive service where they show up 
and swap out failing drives before you even know they are going 
flakey).   FWIW, operations uses the EMC for Oracle, and the NetApp for 
flat file storage.   I'm in development on a different continent, so all 
this is hearsay, and that number could be way off.
