Amazon S3 is $0.15/GB/month, so 10TB would be $1,500/month.

For domestic use, that'd be prohibitive, but commercially it's not  
that bad a deal. It really depends on how valuable one's data really  
is and how much of the hoarded data is actually valuable.

I've just added 1TB to the stash, although the actual critical data is  
about 5-10GB tops. The rest is basically a level four cache between my  
CPU and the Internet :)
