Thank you everyone for the advice and great information. From what I am 
gathering XFS is the way to go.

A couple more questions.
What partitioning utility is suggested? parted and fdisk do not seem to 
be doing the job.

Raid Level. I am considering moving away from the raid6 due to possible 
write performance issues. The array is 22 disks. I am not opposed to 
going with raid10 but I am looking for a good balance of 

Hardware or software raid. Is there an advantage either way on such a 
large array?
