Herro,

I'm looking for a cheap dedi within Europe that has at least 12TB storage. I have already checked OVH/Hetzner and it's somewhat out of my budget/spec's.

TL;DR

LOTSA DRIVES

Shit hardware

Decent network

??

CHEAP! (Sub 100€)

Now, halp!

I'll be honest < 100Euros a month, your not going to get anything good for that.

150Euros 12TB? That's a possibility but  not <100

Even with hard drives being pretty cheap what you're asking is pretty damn near impossible (for less than 100).  

Also why can't you just get a few backupsy or just storage VPSes and install Gluster FS?

Big box there. 12TB for < 100 euros a month... 

Even something like Backupsy in the US is $7 on discount for 500GB  you need 24x that in storage.  Which doing staight math there is $168 per month.

Gosh, 12TB is 4 3TB drives.

OVH and Hetzner can't give you that price?   Here come abstract brands that may....

Not that I use them but:

You don't need 12 x 1TB drives for just "storage". Cheaper would be either 4 x 3TB or 3 x 4TB.

Nforce have a box in their outlet:

8TB Storage  but I'm pretty sure they can do a drive upgrade on it to 3TB Disks:(+ € 12.50 per disk) + Unmetered incoming, which is always hot for storage box's ;)

Yeah but 1TB outgoing. If you need 10TB, it's 40 more EUR

On a budget of 100Euros you've got to scrap the barrel so to speak and it would depend upon outgoing usage, the OP didn't mentioned much other information except jstorage.

Unmetered inbound is a big advantage and saves a lot of money in that case but it depends upon the OP's usage.

Well, increasing the budget is certainly possible and would make things a lot easier too, but what's the challenge in that? The box is more or less intended for long-time storage and won't really any outgoing bandwidth. Hardware itself isn't really of any importance as long as it can handle the amount of storage without going full-on derp.

8TB is too little, i could stretch to 10TB but preferably 12TB+

If it's long time storage, why do you need it in Europe? If you say USA east coast is okay, I can do 10TB for 100 Eur in Orlando

No, no USA. There are simply too many reasons not to. I'm in Europe myself too, so it makes more sense to keep it around here.

I haven't crunched the numbers but then why can't you just use Amazon Glacier?  

Edit:  Ok so assuming it's $0.01 USD/GB/month it'd be around (assuming 12 TB and 1 TB == 1024 GB) it comes out to $122.88 USD/month which using Today's conversion rate from USD to EUROs it comes out to roughly 93.03 euros.  

This is not factoring in bandwidth (incoming is free, outgoing is... not).

Nah, no cloud-things. Just dedicated hardware that i manage and control. But the idea was good, thanks!

The general idea is good, but i could just slap it on a box here at home. At this  stage i would just want to keep this data off-site (or, not at home).

The idea is to store some important data on this box for a while, then once everything is finished here at home, move it back so to speak.
