Hello all!  To start off with, my name is DataHoarder!  I (this should be very obvious), am a Data Hoarder.  I am at 69 Terabytes of stuff, and believe this would help me on the road.  My life's plan is to travel the world in either a van or a RV.

I do Remuxed blu ray, so at 40GB per movie (average), you would be looking at 1,725... if it was a standard 2 hour movie.  However with it your example being 3.5 hours per movie, it would be about 985 Movies you could fit on that... or porn... always porn...  


Those examples are for 1080p Bluray remuxes only.  If you were to go with 2160p, you would be looking at an average of 200GB per movie, which would drop down the movie total to 345 Movies.

If you were to do 4320p movies (8k), you would be looking at an average of 500GB per movie, which would bring the total number of movies you could store on 69TB to 138 Movies.  In just a few short years, this is what you would be looking at.  Although HDD/SSD sizes are going to be substantially different than what they are now.  By the time 4320p movies become mainstream, I would be looking at a cool half petabyte or more.

Now, (just one more) if you were to do 8640p movies (16k) movies, you would be looking at 2TB per movie, you would only be able to store 34 Movies on that 69TB drive you have.

So let's get to the question of how you're going to bring it with you? Assuming you aren't looking at cloud storage, you're going to need some sort of NAS. At 69TiB, you're looking at a decent collection of disks.

You could use 12 TiB disks. Ten of them would give you 80 TiB of usable storage in a ZFS RAIDZ-2 setup. Gives you two disks parity and a tiny bit of room for expansion.

End result is you'll be carting around some decent hardware. I'm not sure what the consumer market has for that capacity; you might be looking at enterprise-class hardware and the corresponding power requirements. That's just me talkin' though....
