Your filesystem suggestions - video/dvd archive for video editing
I forgot to paste the link, sorry.

Here's a link to a site that has FileSystem sizes. It appears that ext3
has a limit of 8TB at 2kB block size, and 16TB at 4kB block size. So
you may want to check that out.
I see no problem though in making two 5TB partitions, each one being an
ext3 filesystem. That is very simple to manage and your fsck times will

I'm planing a storage (iscsi, 16 SATA disks, raid 6) for some film/dvd
projects, to archive the clips and final dvd images. The "backup" is the
original video tapes and dvd.
The server is a RH EL 5.2 system, all devices on gigabit lan.
We calculated about 10 TB for the first setup.
For the "novice" users the storage serves the shares via smb; for the
"pro" useres I'd like to use ftp.
My questions concerns the size and the type of the filesystem:
The most simple setup would be ext3, one big filesystem.
The pro is the simple setup and logic management; the contra is e.g. a
long filesystemcheck after a crash.
There would not be mutch concurrent connections or users.
Any thoughts and/or suggestions?
