[TriLUG] Affordable storage?

I lost two drives in two separate arrays, and one logical drive (not good!!!), in the last three days and I need to get a more robust storage system. We have some overheating issues in our server closet (stays around 80 degrees for some reason though it used to stay around 70 with the exact same a/c unit) and it's killing the sandwiched drives in the arrays. These are home-grown boxen and I need to get an affordable (<$7k) storage solution that will start with approx. 1TB and grow up to 5TB, if possible. I'm looking at the Clariion AX150, but have never used EMC before. 

Can anyone recommend a better solution in that price range? 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
