Re: Building NAS
Im not really experienced but I would say im trying to do the same thing
here. As of now, the globalfs's (http://www.globalfilesystem.org )
site has proved to be agood source of information, and also they have a
proposal for SAN that you
probably want to look at.
1) What kind of network overhead can i expect to see on the diffrent
2) Currently im heading for Ext3fs as filesystem but ive been looking
at XFS which sounds very promising too. If anyone have some experince
and can spread some light on it i would be very grateful.
3) Where in the systems is it most likely that i will experince
4) Just general comments on the system and if anyone have any
experinces building a NAS. I have looked at VA-linux NAS solutions
which in overall look alike the system i thought i would build for my
company allthough i think their systems are way to expensive which is
also why we are going to build our own ;-)
