I'm guessing the OP works for a petroleum company, given the seismic data.
Either that or a government agency studying volcanism.  He states their DS4700
system(s) (a single DS4700 is limited to 112 drives) have 384x300GB drives.
That setup would cost at least $250k USD at IBM list price, probably more
given the number of drives.

Money isn't the issue here.  Lack of planning and procedure seems to be the 
issue.
