I would consider 4.0, several (three or four) strings of LVD disks and
either a Mylex eXtremeRAID 1100 (64MB or more) or an AMI MegaRAID
Enterprise 1500. (The 1600 should probably work too, but I haven't seen
one yet so I can't be sure.) And definitely softupdates.
Note that you can't put more than 8 disks into an array with the Mylex
controller (easily), so you'd still want to use ccd or vinum over the top.
