[OpenAFS] sanity check please.
Sat, 3 Sep 2005 16:50:33 -0700
Hi everyone, I've been playing with openafs for a couple of months
now and I'm just wanting some to sanity checks of my idea of an AFS
I'm wanting to build a scalable system that will have millions of
images stored on a file system. (this is where AFS comes in) It
looks to me like AFS is able to deal with scaling the partitions and
volumes i.e. total storage. In the end I could have terabytes of
data. Still my belief is that AFS can handle it. My concern is that
I want to replicate the data so that I have some redundancy, AFS can
handle this too.
1) Is this going to become a huge management issue?
2) If I end up getting 5 thousand images a day would I want it to be
in it's own volume so I could replicate each "day"?
3) what's the recommend max size for a volume?
4) These files will be served via apache is that an issue? (my
understanding is it's not)
Hope someone can help shed some light on my subject. :)
