File system to use on Linux Redhat 5.2 when presented with a tera byte of storage
Posted on 2009-04-16
I will be installing a server with Redhat 5 update 2 x86_64 bit architecture and will be presented with a Terabytes of storage. I have to mount this storage all of it for the following directory /opt(all storage presented from EMC PowerStorage or EVA) and will have the Oracle database installed on it.
I need to find out what raid can I use for this but most importantly is which file system can handle a Terabytes of data in Linux e.g. NFS, EXT3 or Something else. Please provide configuration steps.
If the is anyone with information or a link I can read on doing this, I will highly appreciate it as I'm avoiding problems in the longer run if I use EXT3.
