There is unused ~300+TB storage and two of IBM BladeCenter E with 14 HS 21/22 blades.
Also Iam owning AS+PI and have multiple 10GE ISP-grade interconnects ~20+ Gbit of unused (wasted) upload (node-to-client) bandwidth. Also I can plan QoS to obtain at last 5Gbit of download (client-to-node) bandwidth with no additional cost.
Question: what is optimal node size ? 10TB? 100TB? 300TB?
Each node will utilize dedicated blade, separate IP address, 2x1GE IP up-link and 2x2GB FC storage connection.
