VxFS Version 7 disk layout

The Version 7 disk layout can theoretically support files up to 8 terabytes (240) and file systems up to 8 exabytes (263). The maximum file system size that can be created is currently restricted to 235 blocks. For a file system to take advantage of greater than 1 terabyte support, it must be created on a Veritas Volume Manager volume. For the 64-bit kernel versions of AIX 5.2 and 5.3, the maximum file size is 8 terabytes with the largefiles flag set and 2 gigabytes with the nolargefiles flag set, while the maximum size of the file system you can create depends on the block size:

The Version 7 disk layout supports group quotas.
