does this mean, this NAS can be used as a fileserver ? or it can be used as NAS to our file servers ?

It can work as file server and as main server. The guy who own it - using it as main + file server (not the best decision, but will see).

But it will be pretty good as file server.

In theory - yes. But that will be quite complicated task, since it comes without almost any software (make, gcc, etc, etc).

oh ok

hows the performance of file server ?

just saw the hardware specifications, its using celeron and just 1gb ram; will be real hard to push significant traffic with that kinda machine, isnt it

yah higher end models have better cpu, but they suck at ram ; max i see is 2gb ram and that wont be sufficient whn serving 100 users at a time

i guess building a server is better, if the FS is going to be busy; or else this NAS is good to start with :)

NAS will be too slow for a bigger size site... We were experimenting with iSCSI just last month...

Now we're experimenting with other solutions, so hopefully they work out.
