million? Nowhere close to that, you can get a 12-15TB system(raw)
in the ~$130-150k range (15k RPM). If you want SATA instead
say $80k.

Few million and you can get a world record breaker array with
more than a thousand drives(15k RPM) and loaded with all the
software they have.

The capabilities of the system is the same from the low end
to the high end the only difference is scale really.
