Why start with an empty box? You could prime the remote data store locally, then simply send deltas/updates across public networks... (i.e. build the box, place it next to the local server, sync it up with primary storage over fast Gigabit (or better) connections, then ship to remote facility and sync up from then on)

Just a thought,
