hmm, that would need 130T/0.146T = 890 disks. And running raid 5...
personaly i dont like raid5, because if you loose more than one
disk your data are gone, and with this ammount of disks, i expect
failure rather often. (it's proberly not one big raid5 array,
but that just makes it need more disks).
