    Look for a NAS case first. Shop around a bit. Of course, Newegg is teh pwn. However, NAS for shared storage isn't as reliable or fast as SANs, but that's another story...

      You may want to check with Oracle if thats a supported setup. Oracle is I/O intensive. That doesnt sound very practical to me to put an Oracle database on a NFS share assuming thats what your trying to do.

        Check out FreeNas.

        http://www.freenas.org/

        It's a Linux based NAS engine that you can use to create a NAS box from random hard drives you have around the house.

        I'm currently using it to back up my home network.
