I need an opinion in regards to mapping a QNAP iSCSI LUN in Location A to Server in Location B and find out if its wise to execute this plan or will I end up bottle necking my VPN connection between both sites?.
My plan was to create a iSCSI LUN on the NAS located in Location A and initiate the connection on the server in Location B... REAL question for is; When user saves a file (10GB) will that come across the network from A->B then back to A? or is the server smart enough to tell the network packets to store the files in the device located in same A location?
The type of hardware invlolved
- QNAP NAS (TS-EC880U) in Location A
- Server 2012R2 Server in Location B
