Locally Mounted Databases

Until recently, we mounted the full GCG database suite locally.  Then we ran
out of disk space.  We are now considering whether to permanently stop
mounting the databases locally, or to increase the disk capacity of our
system to once again contain the databases.

I am intersted in the experiences/soutions taken by other sites.  In
considering this issue, some users report that they can search the public
databases more quickly than they had been able to search the local databases
previously, and they worry that as the size increases, searching speed will
decrease further. 

I would very much appreciate hearing from users and system administrators on
this subject.
