We are a developer and have a HUGE contract where the "sub-contract" is supplying modeling and aerial photography data---25 terabytes. It's reference data, but we need to house it, and access it from our Windows XP workstations. We are looking for a somewhat sensible solution. We are running Netware 6.5 SP7 on Proliant G4 servers. We currently have internal RAID 5 1tb capacity---fully loaded---using NSS pooling.

With NSS, I know the 8tb limit of a pool. I suppose we could have 4tb pools----4 drive letters---assuming the data is dividable.

Is anyone access such a large data set...and have suggestions?
