Can redhat treat several hard disks as on big ( 22TB ) partition ?
I heard Scientific Linux CERN SLC can do it.

Partitions cannot be created across physical drives. I presume you should be interested in RAID about which I know nothing.


What *looks* like partitions can, such as LVM or numerous other technologies. 22 TB is well past the 32-bit limit at 2 Terabytes, so requires a more sophisticated technology and preferably 64-bit hardware to handle it.
