We got 2 server, Windows Server 2003 Active Directory Server(DNS, DHCP) and one server as a Application Server.
we restricted user access to their hard disk and partitions, and redirected their My document to that Application Server and make for each client private folder. we got around 160 user and they use only Microsoft Word and save doc file on their my document.
So I want to replace that Application Server with one NAS Storage for getting best performance! Questions are: Is it good Solution for getting best network performance? Is it difficult to configure NAS storage for using in Windows server 2003 Platform, Make that special folder for each user? because most NAS Storage use Linux OS and File system? Which Microsoft services don't support NAS Storage? (I heard about Exchange, anything else?!) Is there any NAS with windows OS? any suggestion for NAS to buy?
