    Extra Storage Methods

    What in your opinions is the best way to expand the storage of many 1U rackmount servers that only have 2 hard drive bays and are nearing capacity?

    Cost is a factor, but not if it means sacrificing stability or speed, any suggestions?

    Build a SAN or NAS box. I would suggest deploying one using ZFS. Here is an Anandtech article on the topic:

    Then you could mount that volume from your existing 1U server using either iSCSI or NFS.
