Looking for the lowest cost external storage arrays

I have an in-house image backup system that is reaching it's limits.  I currently am using a nStor sata array enclosure that comes with it's own raid controller.  The unti is nice (outdated and unsupported), but it works like a beast.  I have it outfitted with 9 1.5TB SATA drives in a RAID5 arrangement.  So that gives me plenty of space, but I now need to match that space on the redundant array in the offsite location as well.  Before I try to hunt down this same nSTor unti, are there other options out there that are direct cheap for want I am needing?  I can handle the raid controller on a card slot and just outboard an enclosure, but an enclousure that contains everything is always nice as well.  I want SATA drives.  Any ideas for me?  Cost is everything.
