I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Off the top of my head I don't know any solutions that can set quotas on files or directories, unless you create a file system, mount this to a directory and set a limit on the file system, that would be possible.

Disk quotas are possible of course, check here

In RedHat storage you could use Gluster for this, but that's not applicable here.
