When a customer's ASP is more than 60% IFS, with PDFs, JPEGs and etc
numbering into the double digit million files, backup becomes pretty pretty
slow.
Besides, why have a 20 core machine with only 3 licensed for i and waste
some of those i cores on IFS when you could have a fileserver on the same
machine?
That is the premise I start this question from.
I've been getting the customer to splice the folders by year/month/branch
or whatever criteria helps to avoid having so many files in a single folder
(and to allow saves to NOT save the entire IFS daily but only the current
in-use folder).
Other tips?
Security in this case shouldn't be a problem, since only the application on
the i should access those files so it can be limited even by IP...

Is NFS a good replacement for having all the files in the IFS? or what
would be a good way to take the IFS out of the i but still use it from
the
i with minimal application changes?

Question back: What's so bad in IFS to move files out to NFS? What's the
alternative (NFS server platform)? And which benefits do you expect?

Besides, moving Data from a local to a remote mountpoint is transparent,
so there should no changes be necessary.
