We're up to, uhhhhh.... (2 * 1.39) + (8 * 1.12) + (4 * 1.67) = 18.42TB, and we'll buy another 10-12TB or so next fiscal year.

So, go ahead and change our statement thusly:

"...with EIDE disks configured as RAID50 arrays using XFS. Currently, 14 machines are in production accounting for over 18TB. By the scheduled end of the survey in 2005, 50TB of XFS disks will be online serving SDSS data to collaborators and the public."

The CDF guys have 32.6TB now as a test bed, and are working on moving that up to 100-200TB Real Soon Now(tm). I'll ask them to send you a "statement."

Hi all -

I've been asked to take another pulse of the XFS user community; we did
this a while ago, and the results are at

If you're using XFS in an interesting/large/impressive/unique
installation, or your company is shipping a product using XFS (and you
can go on the record about it*) I'd like to know, so I can update the
information in the above web page.

Rumor has it that Linus didn't think very many people were using XFS;
perhaps I'll point him at this page when it's updated.  :)



*If you can't go on the record, feel free to drop me an off-the-record
note.  :)
