I might be wrong, it's been a while. But if I'm not mistaken I did
successfully mount a 5TB partition over nfs from a netapp unit. If
that's the storage you require, you might be more interested in those
units (with an added bonus that they come up in less than a minute after
an unclean shutdown).
And if you really want the maximum size for partitions on OpenBSD (just
under 1TB), then don't forget to read up on fsck memory usage.
