2. As sata disks fails often(relatively, when you got lots of disks...), each time a disk fails, i will have to manually replace the disks, and replace the bricks;

Your disks should be part of a RAID set. (you choose the RAID level!)
If a disk fails, the RAID controller will keep the RAID running, and will rebuild when a new disk is inserted.
Or you can have hot spare disks of course.

But yes - unless you have a robot arm in the server room you will have to manually change the failed disks!
