What about the RAID-Z in Sun's ZFS filesystem on Solaris?  Doesn't that avoid this problem?

i was wondering if you noticed this or not but you were talking about sata drives but yet the picture of hdd's were all Pata drives, just wondering if this was done on purpose or just by accident

Those are probably all SCSI drives, taken straight out of a server somewhere. PATA drives probably wouldn't be able to scale that far, right?

They're all PATA there.  If you follow the link it says exactly what they are.  The purpose of the pic was just to show what 2 TB *used* to take.  It's unrelated to the SATA/RAID issue itself
