Cool!  We've been doing something like this (concept) for a while with 
Delta-V (http://scalableinformatics.com/delta-v), though we add higher 
performance layers atop this, and a number of automation bits, not to 
mention iSCSI, SRP, AoE, iSER, ..., NFS/SMB/...

They go the minimal price route on everything.  Desktop drives, non-ecc 
memory, desktop motherboard, etc.  Low performance, but probably good 
for cold data of large size.
