File System choices

Our data set is primarily CADD based files..large DWG, TIFF, DGN type files. We currently are running NSS with Netware 6.5. It's be very stable. We are in the process of doing our diligence on migrating to Linux OES2, with the thought that we'd like to consider a file system change. Our requirements are that we are very invested in CADD, and have large files. Also, we do not like the 8TB limit to a volume on NSS.

So we are looking for a proven file system that performs with large CADD files.

Re: File System choices

Could go with JFS or XFS (can't remember what MythTV uses for the HD recordings because those are large files).

You're not the only one with issues with the NSS limits. Novell doesn't seem to listen or care though.

You could use this to submit an enhancement request, although not sure it'll do much good.
