[OpenAFS] vice partition sizes, and large disks

    We are planning on moving to raid arrays(sun T300s) for our afs file
server disks,
and I was wondering if there are any special considerations when chosing
afs partition sizes.
Does it make sense to use the entire array as a single partition(~500GB)
or should we break
it up. what things will be affected by the choice of partition size,
backups? performance?

thanks for any information you can share on this subject.
