Question iSCSI target vs. Samba vs. NFS share for Windows client use


Hi All,

I'd like to know which one is the fastest transfer / throughput rate across the network for the file sharing ?

I'm trying to create some more datastore for storing the very large backup to disk files.

so I'm now considering between running the following over the network:

Ubuntu Server + Samba
Openfiler + iSCSI target (never try this before).

all of those will be over the gigabit network and the shared network drive will be mainly used by Windows Server 2003

Thanks.
