I am a solution architect working in a new area here. I have an bid proposal "outsourcing" opportunity to provide a very high level design/costs comprising Windows server, AD infrastructure and migration exercise of Tb of data - mainly graphics files (jpg, tiff, pdf etc) held on Netapp devices across multiple office sites globally.
Am interested particularly in the migration process to file server instances, ability to retain a global namespace capability for customer. I believe this service will need to use the CIFS protocol.
Can anyone share the experiences here of potential design and migration..?
