Max CIFS Volume size


Hi everybody,

One of my customer want to place many video cameras to monitor his office.

This videocam have to store video on Nas server.

So cameras manufacturer tell me he must ONE unique volume of 50 To size.

So is NETAPP System is capable to provide one unique volume of 50To ?

In fact, for example, cameras software export video on CIFS share O:\Backup which must be 50To larger ...

Is it possible with NETAPP system ?

Fas2040 ? which model ?

Thanks a lot..

I'm guessing that you're asking for a 50TB volume. That will be a problem on any model.
