Wouldn't 48 terabytes be nice to have?

Apparently, SUN Microsystems is making an offer to ATLAS sites including those involved in the CERN LHC (Large Hadron Collider) project to purchase to extra storage space... $25,000 for the x4540, capable of storing 48 TERABYTES. The offer is exclusive to participants, but there's a catch - you have to buy 5 of them to get the good deal ;-)

I want one! This could be useful for hosting my Bio2RDF node...
