The Drobo with a FW800 connection makes for a nice backup device.  As 
insane as it sounds, I've also moved the Photoshop swap space on my 
G5 2x2 over to it.

In your case you would either need DroboShare for a Drobo, or a 
DroboPro.  Though I think that Mac Mini server with a Drobo would be 
a very nice option.
