90 Minutes, how "enterprisable" is that? Just cause you can, doesn't mean you should: What if that server tanked during working hours at the corp? You would have to sit and wait for it to come back up. Worse than that are the rebuild times for degraded arrays. Try to rebuild a **huge** array on **huge** discs during production with lots of IO and hope you don't lose another disc. There are practical alternatives with thoughtful management to circumvent the need for and 8EB or larger array, but YMMV :)
