16TB ext3 support was included as a technology preview in RHEL5 and fully
supported in 5.1. I've got a couple of >8TB ext3 FSes. Why ext3?
Because nothing else is as well supported by the vendor on RHEL/CentOS.
For primary file servers, I don't want to muck about with add-on kernel
modules, "plus" kernels, or anything else of that sort. I want to run as
close to stock as possible. And on anything RHEL derived, that means
QB3 Shared Cluster Sysadmin
