I thank you all for your comments. If I were to buy a couple of external
firewire/sata/ide/raid cases with around 2TB capacity each, and attach
them to one or two of my existing [fastest] servers, would I be getting
a comparable solution?
Also, we produce, not only lot's of data, but files that have started to
reach beyond the 2Gb threshold, an issued which I'm already having some
challenges with. It becomes a challenge to move them around. Would you
care to comment on that?
Has anyone had to deal with a similar situation and, if I may ask, how
do you deal with it? I recently put a 64bit system together... and
installed FC3 on it...I've had some problems with it already, but that's
another complete different topic of discussion...
Anyway, Thank you kindly for your feedback.
