Re: [Xen-users] 24TB redundant storage

Look at it this way.

Buy Dell, HP, or IBM and get a service contract.  IBM will even sell you
a contract on used equipment.
The software is really very easy and has tons of support on the
internet, but you could buy the support for that too.

Check out this thread and the forum in general.

So, I really like ZFS, and I've been exploring my options;  Nexenta does
seem very expensive for what I'm looking for (software to run on my own
hardware that I support myself.  Obviously, if they provide and maintain
the hardware, that's rather a different value proposition, but I'm far
too cheap to pay for quality support.)  

Is anyone using the NexentaOS or other free software on large
(50tb+) arrays?    I've heard of a few people using freebsd, but 
not at the scale (and utilization) I plan to have.
