The big12 NAS device from LaCie comes in 48TB, 72TB, 96TB and 120TB varieties, all having a dozen 3.5" bays for your drives.  The device stands 447x161x237mm which is somewhat larger than the Ruler drive Intel just announced and is 17.6kg fully loaded.  It will connect via Thunderbolt 3 and supports RAID 0/1/6/10/50/60.  Just because it is loaded with HDDs doesn't mean it is a slowpoke, KitGuru measure speeds of 2287MB/s for RAID 0 and 2231MB/s for RAID 5, impressive by any means.  The price is also impressively high, however the speed and quality of the RAID software installed in the device makes it desirable for those who need a serious storage solution.

"LaCie’s 12big is the current flagship of the company’s professional range of external drives and if you are in the market for huge amounts of capacity and very, very fast data transfer rates then the 12big might be just the thing you are looking for…..but beware, you will need deep pockets – the 96Tb version we review today costs close to £8,300."

I could use a case like that with at least one 5.25" drive bay and ITX motherboard support for <$99 to replace the Raidmax Seiran that I currently use. To be fair, the drives are the bulk of the price for what Lacie is offering.

That certainly is bigger than Intel's Ruler SSD, which holds 1PB in 1U (or 70 years worth of Video viewing).

No doubt a dozen LaCies would be lower priced.

Honestly Lacie, I really would like this as a proper PC case, it's beautiful.

It's mostly HDD drawers, it's not built to be a proper PC case.

Nothing a Dremel and some time in solid works can't fix.
