It sounds easy :-), but both the idea and this configuration of
a single fs of that size as you describe above to me feel rather
extraordinarily ''optimistic'', to use a euphemism.

Again, the best advice I can think of is to hire RH or SGI
Professional Services to give you a non-public assessement of
your project, which probably will cost you only a small fraction
of the multimillion dollar budget; a mailing list is not an
appropriate place for such a discussion.
