ah, I went te other direction with the math, and assumed no
replication (completely unsafe and never reasonable for a real,
production environment, but since we're all theory and just looking
for starting point numbers)

1PB in 10 min ==
1,000,000gB in 10 min ==
8,000,000gb in 600 seconds ==

80,000/6  ~= 14k machines running at gigabit or about 1.5k machines if you
get 10Gb connected machines.

all assuming there's no network or cluster sync overhead
(of course there would be)

that seems like some pretty deep pockets to get to < 10 minute load
time for that much data.

I could also be off, I just threw some stuff together somewhat
quickly.between conf calls.

Even the Magic 8 ball has an opinion on email clients: Outlook not so good.
