I am going to use Rsync over millions of files, with --link-dest option.
So huge read activity at the beginning of each backup, and huge hard links creation activity.

Of course I will use a RAID array on receiver side, dedicated to Rsync.

Do you have any recommandation over RAID type, number of disks and chunk size to use ?

Thank you very much !
