And the price of disk (and servers) is small enough that you can't
afford to spend much time researching ways to save space.   Newer
hardware gives better reliability and "overhead" to deal with problems
or add new capabilities.   8G is really peanuts these days.   1990's
RISC boxes when 9G SCSI disks were state-of-the art and used big fat
failure-prone cables/connectors can be kept going too long (in a work
environment where downtime is costly -- they make great home systems
if you need an electric heater with blinky lights and a keyboard).
