If there are, I dont' know about them.  I've got four SCSI disk shelves of
seven 9G drives each.  Thats around 240-250G before RAID and filesystem 

I can get a single IDE drive that provides that much storage, and use about
50 times less power and put out less heat.  Sure, I don't get the awesome
Netapp features, but I can "emulate" snapshots to a degree:
