One Box. Sixteen Trillion Bytes.
I have been using this system in production for several months and have consumed only a fraction of the available space:
# df -t xfs Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/sdb1 13566738304 2245371020 11321367284 17% /backup
I am quite happy with the result, as I have plenty of room to add more systems to the backup schedule, and I am confident I will not lose any backups due to hardware failures.
