ext4 >16TB worth waiting?
I am a bit in a pickle. I used ext4 for a 15TB storage array and now added a few more 2TB drives. I didn't do my homework when I decided to use ext4 and I am stuck at 16TB, because e2fsprogs do not support this.
I am reading in postings from 2010 that these tools will be updated to support >16TB. But up until version 1.41.14 this has not happened.
I am currently thinking of moving all my data to an XFS based file system. I had good experiences with XFS in the past, and I don't understand what got into me using ext4 this time :-(
The thing is it will take a long time to move 15TB of data. Does anyone know if there is any chance if e2fsprogs will support >16TB partitions in the near future?
