Thanks - this may have been answered somewhere else but I couldn't figure out the right keywords to use in the search!
For your server do you basically want a plug n play or something that you can build yourself? For plug n play I would recommend Synology which from the people I know who use they always have great things to say.
I currently have a DIY Windows Home Server (26TB) which streams to 2 Dunes, 2 PCHs, HTCPs, etc... in my house. However, the new version of WHS I wouldn't recommend, so on the DIY front you may want to look at UnRAID
I would assume at that size you would want to have some sort of fault tolerance.
