Have any of you used 48TB Windows volumes? Any resources on risk analysis vs ZFS?
I have two that are close to 60 TB. But they are REFS and hold a lot of large virtual disks.
REFS on 2019 is what I would wait for, for bare file storage.
Are you on 2019 now or looking to move off of a Windows file server?
ReFS has a bad track record. It's got a future, but has been pretty lacking and presents a bit of risk. Microsoft has had a disastrous track record with storage recently, even if ReFS is supposed to get brought to production levels with 2019, 2019 is questionably production ready. Remember... data loss is why it was pulled out of production in the first place.
