Types of Servers

Gerard's picture


Im mapping out a Stornext setup within an environment and I need to consider users that will be connecting the volume via ethernet. The storage itself is Promise E & J Raids. 

Im looking for a fileserver that is extrmeely robust to handle a large amount of users (30-50) working on large files in the gigabytes (1-10Gbs)

Could anyone recommed a high-end server that could be used?

Quantum has their own NAS appliance: http://www.quantum.com/serviceandsupport/softwareanddocumentationdownloa...

Any medium grade Windows server with a couple NICs would probably fulfill your requirement.  We handle more users and larger files on an old Xserve with a 3x 1Gbit bond.
