He did. Read first post.
8 spindles not enough for what they want to do +users +render farm expansion and editing off storage. 
Dell is a waste of money and spencer wrong.

Get a supermicro box, single 8 core processor 2.x ghz / 64 gb ram, LSI raid card , 4 Samsung SSD's for cache via LSI  and some  3/4TB drives . Fill this chassis up. Install widows 2012 or Linux. But sounds like they need windows as no one there Prob knows Linux after you leave. 2012 has snapshots and all the fancy stuff.. Easy to manage. DNS , ftp etc... 
Also do they even backup?
