Save emails on NAS
I am currently looking at setting up Zimbra as a replacement for the current service provider that we have. We have had nothing but problems with them. So far I have installed the latest build (that I am aware of) and have fallen in love with it. Currently we cannot get approval for the Network Edition but I am still working on that mainly for backup features and HAS.
Back to the question at hand. We are going to be implementing this company wide and currently have around 250-300 employees that are going to be using the system. I have tried to do as much research as possible, but was not able to find a lot of information regarding this topic.
Is it possible to store all emails on a NAS device? It will be connected up via gigabyte connection to the Zimbra server and will be literally right above it in the rack.
We are on a pretty strict budget for this implementation and I am trying to make the most out of it. Has anyone tried this before? I am sure there has been someone who has. If so, what issues did you run into (i.e. latency, failure, slow read speeds, etc.)? The little bit of information that I have come across has said not to use NAS but did not explain why.
Any help in the topic would be great. Thanks.
