Heh... I've got a pair of the rack units in the storage area off the deck, each has one shelf for HSZ50's, and three for disks. I powered one up once in the apartment, way to noisy, way to much power. Besides, I've only got 4GB drives for both of them, so for the cost of powering one of them I could probably buy a pair of 70GB+ disks and shadow them.

My VMS server is just fine with a 36GB system disk and 3 4GB disks, I've been seriously considering moving all the data to the 36GB disk, but I like the safety the 4GB disks give (easier backups, and I can volume shadow them, though only one is at the moment).
