Huge file systems on Linux (Experienced Admin Please)

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
My company just had a terriable experience with an XFS file system with more than 13 TB of data.  I need the advise of the most experienced Admins, which file system should I use?  We probably will have to recreate the filesystem so it is time to find the options, pros and cons.
