If you need a place to store a million gigabytes, look no further than IBM's new TotalStorage controller. "The SVC uses four 2 Gb/s FibreChannel interfaces, a 4GB cache and dual 2.4GHz Pentium 4 to manage heterogeneous hard disk storage independently of application servers." Apparently is can sustain 1Gbps of I/O.

And, of course, it runs Linux. :-)
