After the data processing gets done I upload the data to my S3 account.
The Mysql db only contains public links to this content. So the largest
db that i have created is a few megabytes.
The reason i asked was that i heard from a few people that XFS will
freeze on its on and its not a very reliable fs.
But on the forums i see a lot of people using xfs and even Rightscale
recommends it. I wanted to know if it would be better as a db fs cause
i dont know how to freeze the fs from rightscale. However, thanks for
the info. I will most certainly try out xfs. Hopefully, everything would
work out ok.
Lastly, Eric you have out done your self. I read your article and its
very well written and its by one of the easiest instructions article
that I have come across.
