What are your space requirements?  Bandwidth?  Hits per minute/hour?  Is that "millions" a real number?  If so, is this a webserver setup, or office environ, or....?

Vary broad question. 'Millions' of users? I've worked in some big companies but 'Millions' of users is way out there. Also - if you have Millions of user users then your turnover must be pretty large so you should be looking at a quality startegic solution rather than just trying to slice cheap disk from the budget.
