I haven't upgraded my account to "meta-arpa" yet to try it out but sdf
has something called the meta-array that gives you 200GB storage you can
manage either with a normal netbsd login or using owncloud. Missing is
the "gigabit internet" part, but it's included at a membership level
that's only $36/yr. (As with ixsystems, I have no affiliation with sdf
-- seems I'm a self-appointed volunteer marketing drone today.)
