Can I create expandable volumes on my setup?

I have a server with a Perc5/i RAID controller and 8 drive bays. I'd like to use it primarily as a storage server, with the idea of buying 4 drives now and expanding later. I'd like to put ESXi on the server and OpenFiler (or FreeNas) ontop of that. I don't need any drive redudancy (there's an attached tape controller), but I'd like to be able to pop in a new drive and expand it like you'd be able to do with LVM. Is this possible? [more inside]

Standalone NAS recommendations?

Does anyone have any recommendations for an off-the-shelf NAS that can handle at least 1TB and may be expanded as needed? Drobo, Buffalo TeraStation, etc.? [more inside]
