It's a crazy idea if you are storing a few gig's, raid 5 would do, but
we could be storing TBytes of audio and video, then using raid's or
san's becomes more of a problem. That's why we are looking into using
the cluster management of Oracle, but pull the audio data out and stream
using Icecast instead of using intermedia.
This solution abstracts us from the filesystem, and their limits.
Big, yes, crazy.... well the least crazy option!
