Yes, you can easily add a new drive to an existing computer and make it
part of your AFS cell. Mount it as a /vicep partition, and you
instantly have more space. It is also easy to expand with additional
file servers, or SATA disk. A cell can grow or shrink as needed.
/afs/rpi.edu/home is spread across 8 file servers, for example.
