Filesystem choice for large storage


I have approx 600TB of fibre attached disk on multiple

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,
