No i am using Samba since few months and i am facing this since the
installation as 200 Mbps is enough for our production environment so i
havent worked over it but now i am planning for HA for Virtualization
by using iSCSI.
and of course we can not afford SAN harware
(expensive stuff) so
planning to make my own i know there are lots of options which will be
unavailable but i think i donâ€™t need them either.
