My 16 y/o son wants to do a science fair project dealing with arrays on a 6 to 8 raid drive system. Since he is not building a server for extended use he doesn't need large capacity or a high end system. Any ideas on a low cost enclosure, system & set of drives for him to use? Is there such a thing as renting a server or loaning for a few months? I lost my job so cannot afford much but do not want to squelch his talent. He has won several CS competitions in the past & I know he is worth the investment but am looking for options. Any helpful suggestions are appreciated.

Unfortunatly any of those suggestions will end up costing money. There are drive enclosures that you can buy that will hold a number of drives , but the more the number of drives the higher the cost. The same goes for renting a server and I don't know where you can get a loaner server. Do you have a budget amount that your working with ?
