Network Storage Server


Hi

I need to set up a server/cluster that will work a Network Storage Device... The idea is that each user will have its own space (not in the same network) so they can mount it in their machines.

I was looking at iSCSI but I'm not sure if they support multiple users... anyone has experience with this??? or has better ideas??

PS: I'm looking for a opensource solution

Thanks in advance

You give next to no details, so it's hard to say. Server/cluster for what? Mount it how? Partition it how? What OS is the server running? Network speed??

iSCSI is only a method of mounting a disk (essentially), nothing more. It will present a mount point to one machine, but (like a SAN), only let one machine access it at a time. So how many users can see it, depends on their access level on the server.

There are lots of off-the-shelf NAS solutions, as well as building a Linux server, and configuring NFS/SAMBA on it for client access.
