    big data

    so commodity servers with 5TB disks, racks into rows and suddenly there is a few PB of storage

    what is the best choice for making them all appear as a giant single file system?

    Don't waste your energy trying to change opinions ... Do your thing, and don't care if they like it.

    Personally, I'd use Ceph or Gluster.

    thanks guys, I was thinking about astronomy and the spectacular amount of data it gobbles up

    Wikipedia is puny compared to this amount of data.
