Filesystem choice for large storage
I have approx 600TB of fibre attached disk on multiple
linux servers. We are using a commercial filesystem
product. We are planning on doubling this storage and
are considering alternative filesystems. Crash recovery
(or fsck) times plays a major concern in this decision.
I have been looking at xfs but don't really get a feel for
recovery times, due to my small test bed.
I am interested in reader's opinions/suggestion as to
filesystem choices for this amount of storage,
