I having a 7-bay NAS box with Raid-5 (5.3TB usable) with netgear gigabit Ethernet switch to connect the hosts (3 windows7 machine Specs: i7 / 16GB RAM / 1TB HDD / gigabit Ethernet NIC). (All of the endpoints are configured with jumbo frame support 9014B).
As well NAS BOX have 2 Separate 1G Ethernet port(Supports LINK AGGREGATION/LOAD BALANCE/FAIL-OVER,etc..) as well one pci slot where i can use 10G Ethernet card if required.
And configured the single SCSI volume over my nas box with available max space to be used.
And now my requirement is, i want the concurrent access to single scsi volume with highest possible throughput from each of machine(Editing Machine ADOBE CS5).
How it would be possible ?
Using any third party alliances like metaSAN iSCSI, DataPlow ?
Or Dedicated open source storage system like FreeNas or a open filler ?
Or any other solution to work with it..
In advanced thanks to all who suggest/help me.
