Subject: [Veritas-bu] Hundreds of millions of files

I'm interested in talking to people who need to manage hundreds of
millions of files.  These are typically <50K, but there are a lot of
them - over 300,000,000 currently on a single Windows cluster.
Naturally, there are a few issues associated with this :-(
Our file store is also growing at a rate of over a million files per

If you're responsible for serving out lots and lots of little files, I'd
appreciate an offlist e-mail from you.  I'm researching new technologies
that we could use to minimize our pain and would like to know what works
and what doesn't work in the real world.
