My deployment plan for my V210 consists of putting it inside the house
with a dedicated point-to-point gigabit connection to my storage server
outside in the deckhouse, hanging my LTO2 drive off it, and exporting
the LTO2 to the storage server via iSCSI over the gigabit link.  The
goal of the whole process is to keep the LTO2 inside in a more
controlled environment, yet have it logically connected directly to the
main storage server with enough bandwidth to keep it streaming.

Guess I'll just have to see how it does, noise-wise, once it gets here.
 Worst case, I can look and see whether I can swap out some of the fans
for quieter ones.
