Hi all,

we want to buy a new fileserver (for our cluster) with about 1 TB, and 
we are thinking of a Linux machine.  My question is: which kind of 
fileserver do YOU use (and why)?

(a) NAS (network-attached storage)?

(b) regular Linux machine with internal RAID?

(c) regular Linux machine with external RAID?
