Heheheh!  Dig this!  The filesystem (and SAN) can expand to 2 petabytes
(that's 2,000 terabytes or 2 million gigabytes).  The way things are
going, we'll probably exceed 100TB by the end of the year.  You can't
believe the amount of fibrechannel stuff I've had to install!  About
250 73GB 15KRPM FC drives and growing.
