Need help to setup Scalable Storage Network

Postby ashish-k » 2015/10/26 12:45:57

Hello everyone,

I have a NAS in our office but (it's limited to 1gbps :cry: ) now we think we will need more storage by time :shock: , so we want a storage server with cifs/smb (basically we want to access files using file explorer) but i don't know how to make our storage network scalable, so I have searched web and I've found how to make storage cheap:
https://www.backblaze.com/blog/petabytes-on-a-budget-how-to-build-cheap-cloud-storage/

But the problem is i dont know how to make scalable network storage.

Thanks for your help :) .

1 gbps is not a capacity. It is a network speed.
Talk to your NAS supplier about scalability.
