"The big Linux storage win with Telia, the Scandinavian ISP, has just been followed by BigStorage Inc's announcement of what is claimed to be the largest Linux storage deployment to date. BigStorage Inc. says it has successfully installed 10TB of its iRAID and nearline data storage at EMusic.com, an e-commerce music company that specializes in the distribution of MP3 audio files over the Web."

"According to the BigStorage announcement, "the installation is the largest successful Linux storage network to date and sets a precedent for Linux's ability to power high-volume storage in an enterprise environment."

"In addition to its iRAID hardware, BigStorage Inc. implemented a backup software solution to create a comprehensive storage system that would integrate with EMusic's existing network. EMusic's complete iRAID and archiving system is backed by BigStorage's benchmark 24/7 LiveResponse customer support policy to guarantee optimal storage performance, around-the-clock uptime, and failsafe protection of their storage investment."
