Storage woes... again

Well, we haven't even had koji for a full release cycle yet and we're 
already worried about storage:

There are plans to implement a koji purger that gets rid of some of our 
builds but I've not seen any estimates as to how much space this will 
get us.  I doubt, highly, that it will be more than half recovery.  
Given the worst case scenario we need to purchase additional storage 
immediately.  Thats what this email is about.

Right now we're storing our stuff on some pretty quick netapps, which 
stinks considering that koji is only accessing a small percentage of 
that storage at any point in time and even then... its over NFS.  I'd 
like to propose we move to cheaper storage that is dedicated to just 
koji.  There are a number of options to do this, including different 
models of netapps.  I'm putting a spreadsheet together that takes in to 
consideration price, how much we get and figures out how much it costs / 
G / month over a 4 year period.  If you guys know of anything to add to 
the list just let me know.
