Hello everyone,
We are looking at putting together a big, fast raster server for a Gis warehouse, and prefer open source. What would you use if you had to store >20TB data, serve any of it quickly to WMS or Google Earth, as well as being able to create any sort of output image in most any format/projection. I've used GDAL extensively in the past, but not sure it would be the best way to proceed, or how to store the data. 
I recently saw Rasdaman is going open source, a possibility? Also that GlobeXplorer used PostGIS (but how?) We also want WCS, but I'm not exactly sure what that even means. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
