JFS and EVMS for Massive Server Storage
Ah ha! Looks like I finally found the article I was looking for…. Kernel Korner – ATA Over Ethernet: Putting Hard Drives on the LAN isn’t directly about what I was asking about earlier, however it’s the one I was thinking of. The article details setting up the LVM, RAID 10 and JFS to allow infinitely expandable filesystems. In the articles case they are using a blade server and ATA over Ethernet, and I’m looking for something using standard IDE and/or SATA drives for a home server, however, the info and principles are the same. Still looking for the fabled “perfect” EVMS tutorial or howto though.
