Hey guys

I´m setting up a backup server in a datacenter

This gear would be used as a Freenas backup server (1u Dell poweredge server) and
RPC-4020 4U Rackmount Server Case with 20 Hot-Swappable SATA/SAS Drive Bays.

I´m going to use an External HBA to connect the Poweredge server to the JBOD unit.

Any recommendation where to get 30 X 2 or 3 TB 3,5" SAS Drives for a good price (refurbished or in good condition).

I´m going to set up a Raid-z3 Array and use 20 disks and have 10 disks as spare parts if a drive fails.

Cheers

Newegg had a reasonable price on 3TB drives recently.

Have a look around the "Great Deals" and "For Sale" subforms here. I think a user on the forum was selling a pile of them as well.
