Hello listmates, This is not specifically CentOS-related - though I will probably execute this design on CentOS if I decide to do so. It will certainly be some kind of Linux. At any rate, here's my situation. I would like to build a fairly large storage solution (let us say, 100 TB). I want this solution to be distributed and redundant. I want to be able to lose part of the machines involved and still stay operational (the bigger part, the better). I would prefer to avoid having to buy large servers to accomplish this task. What I am soliciting here is thoughts, reports from experience, recommendations, etc. Thanks in advance. Boris.
