I've followed Backblaze for some time.
We built a pod a few years ago.
They have 180 TB in a 4U case with 48 X 4TB Disks - https://www.backblaze.com/blog/storage-pod-4-5-tweaking-a-proven-design/
The Diskotech box Dropbox have also appears to be 4U, so thats 250 disks in a pod!

But yes, it makes sense to build your own at their point in time.
