Well, one of those companies will say so, but with a few important

Morgan Stanley's use of AFs does NOT include such large volumes, and
in fact, we are deprecating the use of AFS for RW data on large scale,
and encourging users to use NFS/SAN solutions instead.

OpenAFS has proven to be VERY stable for us, but we primarily care
about RO replication, and not RW data.

We also have an environment with lots of clients, all accessing mostly
RO data, so the kinds of poblems you will see will be very different
from those we have seen.
