Hosting suggestions: seeking LARGE STORAGE servers

we have several applications to use off-(our)-server storage for LOTS of mp3 (classical) music library files.  This repository might grow to be 100GB, but more realistically  200 files @ 20M each= 4GB   for the foreseeable future.  And 1-5G traffic bandwidth per month for the first year or so.

We say off-site storage because honestly we don't want the traffic on our main servers in order to keep apache response snappy.

Do you have any favorite, inexpensive LAMP hosts that we can get an account for this purpose?
Note that nothing is live nor streaming.
Only audio (at least at this point).

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers.

They charge you for what you use - I'm a real fan of their business model as it empowers all (and not just the big players).

In the end, as much as i dislike GoDaddy, i think they have the best solution for our need - it's a very large disk quota which will serve this purpose for several years. Iff successful, then the client will be happy to pay for more quota in the next tiered hosting pkg.

thanks all!
