Probably larger than you can physically attach to it, the theoretical
limit is 18 Peta bytes, not 9. The pages here (marketing info):
talk about 8000 Tbytes being physically connectable to SGI hardware,
I am not sure what sort of configuration is required to do that or
how the number was arrived at.
