What file system is best for this application:
I am new to Linux and want to use it for a backup server, which will back up a number of drives nightly. The backup server has 2 raid 5 schemes: 1 is Ultra Wide Scsi, with 4 drives (4 x 47GB.) the other is 10 RAID 5 fibre Channel drives (10 x 18.2GB.)
The latter array will actually be 9 active raid drives with 1 acting as an automatic spare incase of a failure. The scsi array doesn't (yet) have that option.
basically i want to backup each harddrive from each computer on my small network of 5 computers.
While I will have many questions, I will look for the answers before asking here.
First thing's first though, WHAT FILE SYSTEM IS BEST FOR MY BACKUP SERVER?! XFS? ReiserFS? NTFS (through the latest sourceforge development?) ole FAT32? WHICH?!
Speed isn't a real necessity, stability is. I don't want any errors, or as few as possible.
Thanks for your time.
