Don't leave out good old FC (Fibre Channel).

I just went to a seminar where EMC is going to start supporting 300 GB ide drives in their CX line.  (To be announced shortly.)

I think a maxed out cx600 holds 240 drives.  (Some of these may still need to be fibre drives, not ide.)

So you put in a couple of CX600s full of drives and use LVM to manage it.

The only trouble is $$, not technology.
