    Half way through the billing cycle and hit the 200GB limit.

    Apparently shaped to 256k, Netfilx still works though (bit fuzzy) haha.

    1080p Netflix does use a lot of data.

    Any chance of providing us some info on how you store/manage all that? Personally i'm more interested in how you've cut up your data array to store then back that up and a rough cost of $$$ input into that bulk storage.

    Having said that for me its around 500-700GB/month and i'm up to 19.7TB out of 20TB so less then a months storage left for me :( ..... looking at 3K or so on more storage to take me up to 40TB or so.

    On average I was accumulating 2.2-2.6TB a month now it's about 1.3-1.8TB @ 2Mb/s on ADSL2+. I suppose I have all the Linux ISO's I could think of so it's not so much a requirement... ;)

    Basically its broken down into so.

    Main server:

    Norco 4224
    Intel e3-1230v3
    Asus P8WS
    32gb DDR3 ECC ram
    Areca 1880ix-24
    120gb ssd boot drive (i think its a samsung)
    120mm fan wall using artic cooling fans
    24x3tb drives (mixture of Toshiba/Hitachi drives)

    Its built into 2x 12 drive raid 6 which gives a usable size of 54.4tb (27.2tb per array)

    Fairly bulletproof system have had it for a number of years now.

    In addition to that
    Rackables S3016
    16x2tb drives (Hitachi)
    Connected via 8088 in a 16 drive raid 6 array (25.34tb usable)

    Download server

    Gigabyte i3 brix
    8gb ddr3l ram
    Proway 8 drive usb 3 external enclosure
    8x5tb toshiba drives, individual drives, 4.54tb each so 36.32tb usable.

    Now currently the main server is at 99.89% full external sas box is 99.91% full and download server is 81.40%

    Currently backing up the non essentials (ive had the critical stuff backed up for awhile now via crashplan.

    At home between 3 of us we use about 50-60gb a month. Our bandwidth allocation is 1TB.

    At the office we use about 30-40gb out of an allocation of 1TB.

    Around 2-3TB a month.

    Most of my content is 720p episodes and 1080p movies, and then software and streaming media on top.

    I'm not even sure how I tell. Unlimited plan with TPG = no stats in the my account section.

    Lots of 720p content though, and Netflix which always streams in HD as well as Dolby Digital+.

    I wonder what peoples per-person usage works out to be and if that levels things out at all.

    we are 100 - 160GB / person.

    I'm going off my Gargoyle (Router) stats, Optus only give you this month and no history at all on the unlimited plans.
