> Where can I get an enterprise-class 2TB drive for $100?  Commodity SATA isn't enterprise-class.  SAS is; FC is, SCSI is. A 500GB FC drive with EMC firmware new is going to set you back ten times that, at least.  What's youre data worth indeed, putting it on commodity disk.... :-)

I can get Seagate's Constellation ES series SATA drives in 1TB for
$125. 2TB will run me around $225.

They're not something I'd run my database off, I have 15k SAS drives
for that, but for large amounts of storage on the cheap like our
backup system, it's just fine.
