nearly 1/2TB in 2 RAID0 arrays built with 36GB 10krpm Ultra3 SCSI disks.
Plus a RAID1 array for history.

Even after long crashes, this server is still able to eat fresh articles
while absorbing backlogs (going from 20/30Mb to 80/100Mb in IN with
almost no impact in OUT, all my peers are multihomed).
Note that this server is not full feeding another internal/local server,
only remote peers and customers.
