maximum blob size


What is the maximum size of a blob stored on a Centera cluster ?

Page 29 of the API Reference guide, it indicates 100GB with a note "The EMC-recommended limit".

Does this means that the limit can be increased ? I didn't find a parameter for this in the API docs, so this would probably mean an EMC intervention on the cluster ?

I'm asking this because I have to store a 200GB file (yes, two hundred gigabytes).  I know I could split it, maybe 50 4gigs pieces, Or 4 50gigs pieces and use blob slicing on each piece.  Buf if possible, I'd like to avoid special treatment for this one file.
