    You could also fit in a 4TB 1u SAN with those funds! Very handy for dumping those user areas on to in the event of an emergency, using the EduMove tool of course
    And you can use the SAN as network backup repository!

    I intend on doing a duplicate of the harddrives of our 2 servers, and then running backups once a week and put the back ups on the portable servers. We have no SANs working here, due to the fact we are a small middle school so there is no need. Plus this way, if we ever have a fire again, we can pick up the cab and run out with all of our data intact!

    Just a question, what depth is your cabinet and what depth your server?

    The 8u case we used can be seen at Gator Cases is the manufacturer of musical instrument and audio visual cases - 8U Audio Rack; Rolling (GRR-8L) and is approx. 480mm deep.

    The case we used has vanished off the XCase website for some reason

    Personally, I would stick to the 8u rack-case and use 2u cases if you plan to build one. The 2u cases are much quiter and I know the pain and frustration that was involved in fitting the components together in the case we used, never mind one half the size!

    If you wanted a cheap SAN in there, you could use a 2u case filled with disks and run OpenFiler off a compact flash card. For basic web filtering you could use a 1u mini-ITX box runnning Smoothwall Express.
