I agree with the points Alex made. It would be much easier to start
small and then work your way up.
I recently setup galaxy for our HPC cluster for the entire school of
medicine. Its only a few ~month into our setup but we are currently
using ~300GB of storage. This is part of our larger cluster storage
pool of 600TB.
We use the gluster filesystem across 6 storage nodes. We are trying
fhgfs and other file systems as well (lustre, ceph, etc).
If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
