I am planning to build a 12x 1TB array RAID 6 on a hardware controller... I will use it as a nfs server for archiving files (we need to keep legal files for 6 years)...
Raid 6 will give me a 10 TB drive approx...
Reading these pages:
I kinda understand freebsd is not well suited for that. I can read between the lines that we shouldn't go over 2TB. Is this information still exact or outdated ?
I'm pretty sure I won't be able to boot on that megadrive so I planned on having 2 smaller disk on raid 1, but I want to make sure the big disk will work and will be reliable.
Could someone comment please ?
Thanks in advance
