Default Your filesystem suggestions - video/dvd archive for video editing

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
be lower.

Hi,

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?


Best regards

Götz Reinicke
