I would recommend building a ZFS style storage solution.  You could use the
free Nexenta Community Edition as the software.  Nexenta Community Edition
now allows for up to 18TB of storage.

Here is an article from a year ago at Anandtech about building your own ZFS

We are going to buy some NFS storage for 6-8 VMs on a single host, but
want to expand to a second host.
What storage recommendations would you give if you have between 2000
and 5000 USD?

How about nexenta? what hardware would you use? any vendor?

Experiences with openfiler and opennas?

Thanks for the responses.
