As I feel sure you are aware, not everyone is in that country.

And quite aside from that, there are issues of noise, heat, and power
consumption.  And another one, actually, which is more significant in
many cases: physical space - not all machines have enough drive bay
space to load them up with drives.  Indeed, I occasionally see machines
that have no expansion space at all.
