We use netapps (www.netapp.com) and it works great. One of the big things
that made me move towards the netapp in place of many of the other NAS units
out there was the fact that it runs a nix based OS. Most of the ones, say..
Dell for example just run a stripped down version of windows with file
sharing for unix. It doesn't give you the ability to make any tweaks to the
nfs server. We've been using the netapps for about 6 months now and it's
been awesome. A client that hosts in our datacenter turned us on to the
netapps nas units. He's been using them for I think about 2 years now and
swears by them.

Subject: [vchkpw] SATA NAS for vpop cluster
I am looking around for a suitable (ie, reasonably priced and performance)
NAS unit in order to convert a bunch of standalone servers into a cluster.
SATA RAID units seem to be what I am looking for.
I would appreciate those out there who have experience using NAS boxes for
this purpose to share your wisdom.
What are you using ?
How has it been working for you ?
Any performance issues during busy times etc ?
Thanks a lot.
