help: require to increase file storage space.. NAS?

Hello Gurus,

I need to increase disk space for active Pro/E file usage, is NAS a good
solution for file serving to the users in terms of performance? My
understanding is that a NAS can do the file serving functions, removing
some load from the main server, however, some technical hardware ppl. tell
me that the NAS is not suitable as a front line, large files, multiple
users 'live' file server.

NAS consideration:
Storage size: 300Gb (S)ATA, hot swappable HDD
Fault Tolence: RAID 5
CPU: P4 2++ GHz
RAM: 512 Mb

Your experience & help on using NAS for Pro/E I/LINK, NAS model replies
please. As usual, post direct to me & i'll post a summary for all in a few
days time.

TIA
