You could get a 16-port 3ware controller and hang a bunch of 2TB drives
off of it.  Even with fairly decent redundancy you should be able to get
at least 16TB of usable storage out of it.  It might not have the greatest
performance though (which gets back to this box's intended purpose).

A colleague recently bought an 8-port box similar to the above for just
about $5k US, with just under 12TB usable.
