It would certainly be more expensive than a micro atx board (by an order of magnitude) would be a embedded board like a compact pci board (like http://www.pt.com/products/prod_zt5515.html) with a 4 port serial ata pmc add on board the trick is that most telecom solutions aren't oriented around storage so the mounting and powering of the hard drives would be the trick.

A more relevant solution might be the new Pentium-M desktop boards that DFI is releasing (site is down right now so specs are guesses) but I think they have GbE onboard and a couple serial ata ports (maybe not 4 but an add on card would solve that)
