Micronet makes Fantom external hard drives, multi-TB, USB 3.0, some also with eSATA: see

I haven't ordered one yet but have been thinking of it.

If you don't already have eSATA port, it may be possible with a PCI or PCIE card with eSATA port(s).

You could also consider possibilities with NAS as Polytropon suggested.
