    You need this config in EU or US location?
    Failure is success if we learn from it.

    I would go with a different solution. Like 2 servers in a cluster mode for high availability with 1GBps network unlimited bandwidth and another server as a shared storage which would hold the disks.
    For the shared storage I would go with Raild 10. It is more expensive setup but less headache if one of the drives gets bad and you need to replace them and in if you have a faulty drive there is no performance degradation like in the case of Raild 5

    Nforce will be good choice.Since they offer huge amount of storge with unmetered bandwidth.Fdcserves is also an option but they have a lot of negative reviews.

    It depends if you care about high availability or not. And also the size and amount of files daily will be downloaded.

    you could go with the 5GB of daily traffic but you have to be sure that you won't met that limit. Also it you don't care about high avaliablitiy you can have only one server setup with a bunch of hard drives. I personally would go at least with a Raild 0 setup.

    Therefore you can drop from 3 servers to 1 and with limited daily traffic but as I mentioned you will have to be sure you will not meet that traffic.
