I run a coaching and personal development business, and I have staff helping to run the coaching programs. All the coaching programs we run are videoed (so that we can keep records). We currently keep all the videos on many portable external hard disks. However the number of external hard disks has grown to an unmanageable number now and I would like to centralize the solution.

a local NAS just the drives will cost you over 1000  
 2 x 6TB @ 250EA + 250 for redundancy (raid5)  +   backup = 1500
not counting the Enclosures/NAS box (you can use a spare PC with unraid)

Amazon Glacier 10TB for 36 months with 0 egress = $1440 ($0.004 per GB / month)
