Best solution for multi-user & large file access to a NAS Tags: NAS / RAID Hard Drives CAD Storage Last response: March 6, 2012 9:05 PM in Storage Share IITS March 2, 2012 7:30:26 AM Hi Everyone I'm looking to implement a NAS system into an architects, who access large CAD files and photos. There are 6 users all together, all of which will be accessing the NAS at the same time. Does anyone have any advise/ recommendation on what might be suitable and what specs I should pay particular attention to (i.e. Hard drive speed, NAS processor, etc). I've setup a few Netgear ReadyNAS Duo system for companies before, but they have mainly been for accessing small files. It maybe that a ReadyNAS will be suitable?
