$2/GB to $3/GB is for usable capacity and there are no funky de-dup factors in play. It actually is stated how big the box is: 2U height unit with 24 NVMe SSDs, you will get the same performance whether you use 1.6TB or 3.2TB or 6.4TB SSDs so usable capacity will be 35TB/70TB/140TB based on the SSD size.
