comment Is virtual machine slower than the underlying physical machine?
Two pieces of software runing on two VM on the same server won't communicate faster than two softwares under the same OS on one bare metal server.

comment Is there a way to connect a remote folder with local cache on OSX or Windows workstation?
@AntonyGibbs : Please do not waste your time trying to improve our current setup. The graphists are quite happy with it since we switch to afp. My question is theorical, I want to know if there is any way to get local cache on remote folders. If you find a system to have it you'll get all my reputation points. :)

@AntonyGibbs: I was using smb:// anyway that causes high CPU load (probably due to application continuously watching after files changes). No matter how efficient the protocol is, it will still be limited by gigabit link if there's no local cache.

@yagmoth555: That would cost at least $120.000 for SSD SAN + 10Gbswitches + 10Gb NIC on each worksatation. Why wasting so much money where clever use of existing hardware would be enough ? My problem is not how to make the network work (it works fairly well with a small NAS), my goal is to leverage power of hardware.

@AndrewDomaszek : I edited answer, SMB issue solved. No matter what hardware is used on server, local SSD cache at 700MB/s will always be faster.

Thank you for trying to answer. I don't want control version I don't want them to check in/out (because they wil never bother doing this). Also GIT, SVN and others are made for textfile, they are not meant to be used for 500MB PSD files. I want it to be a transparent remote folder... with local cache.

They are running on macOS, but I'm interested in a solution compatible with the 3 majo OSes (Linux, Windows, MacOS).

@Roman : Maybe, but this question demonstrate the minimum understanding of IP and ARP protocols. Could you please explain wich problems could occur from this network configuration ?

This question have been close because it should demonstrate "a minimum understanding of the problem beign solved" by @MDMarra, Dave M, pauska, Chris S... Guys, did you ever heard about proxy-arp ? Could you please consider reading my edit and reopen the question ?

comment Can a computer route IP trafic between two LAN if it is not configured as gateway?
@mfinni : That's it !!! Thank you verymuch. I just enabled proxy ARP on the linux box and it works like a charm now. Just connected a synology NAS to both subnets, enabled ip_forwarding and proxy_arp, and I got a free gigabit pseudo-bridge between my two LAN. I really think this question should be reopened. And I'm considering using it on long term.

@MDMarra : I know it is ridiculous and I won't do it for any other purpose than testing. I thought about this and I just want to know if it is possible. Consider it as an exercise for learning network.

@MDMarra: I did not saw your edit. If computer on one side are beliving the IPs of the other LAN are local, and the linux box between LAN to have all those IP (255 IP) and transfer packets to the other side, it should work no ?

comment Can a computer route IP trafic between two LAN if it is not configured as gateway?
I want the other IP to appear local and the linux box to have them all (192.168.0.1-255 on one side 192.168.1.1-255 on the other) then forward packets to the other side. I can confirm that your suggestion of adding route to pcs works, I tested it already :)

@MDMarra : sure I should, but you're completly off the question here. If you know why it could not work, please, tell me.

Because each LAN have their own DHCP. And users want to keep their internet connection. If I connect two networks directly together there will be some DHCP fight. Do you think it is possible to block DHCP trafic using cisco SF300-8 ?

It is stated in the question. The router could not handle Gigabit trafic and we have dozen of big 10Gb files to move everyday.
