>From what I've read is that you can get 1GB/s out of xfs, and possibly
greater. If this is true, then I'd suspect that it would be a good fibre
setup or possibly a LOT of scsi controllers and disks. Say 4-6 UW160
controllers 2 channels each and say 4-6 disks per channel. (Pure scsi) If
fibre, then you should be able to use say 4 Single port Fibre cards
attatched to enough disks, say 16 or so, to get a reasonable throughput
like you speak of.
