    Do what Google does and use consumer grade hardware. A few cheap switches daisy-chained on baking trays will do.

    But with your earnings that should be no problem?

    The first switches for SKA were just £50.

    Thats fine for google as it doesn't really matter if a few machines go offline, the rest can pick up the slack until the switch is replaced. I don't think SKA is at that level of hardware redundancy yet.

    Move it into the cloud so you're no longer responsible for any hardware.
