"SGI on Thursday here at Linux Expo announced it will make the
heart of its Irix operating system -- its 64-bit journaled XFS file
system -- available to the open-source community."
"XFS will help Linux get past some of the limitations it has
today, like scaling and the 2GB file limit. Our goal is to make
Linux as capable as [SGI's] Irix in terms of scaling and number of
processors it can handle," said Harris Shiffman, strategic
technologist for SGI in Mountain View, Calif.
"XFS will enable Linux to scale high enough to handle file
systems as large as 18 million terabytes of data and files up to 9
million terabytes, SGI officials said."
