It depends on the structure of the drives.  Do you want a dedicated 
controller card or is an embedded card on the motherboard acceptable?

Entry Level Dell Poweredge T150 servers could work, or build your own 
rig with an SLI MegaRAID or HighPoint RocketRAID dedicated controller card.

There are configurations like this in a Rackmount configuration, tower 
configurations, or Mini Server configurations, it all depends on what 
kind of space / budget / environment it is going in.

Reply back with more details if you want a better answer.
