    To give you a datapoint we have .5Tb arrays both hardware and software
    and they will both take around 10 hours to resync and a good 30mins
    to fsck, even mounting them will take 30 seconds or so. If you have
    lots of data on your discs then the fsck will take longer still. For
    large discs you *really* want journalling and you really don't want a power
    outage/disc failure to cause a resync.
    For filesystems of this size if you really care about downtime you
    might want to look at some of the commercial solutions eg Network Appliance
    NFS servers (http://www.netapp.com). We've measured a netapp box with 1.4TB
    at 2 minutes from pulling the power to back online and serving data.
