Need some recommendation on which route to go:
we are a small company with around 35 users. Currently we have two Netgear Readynas boxes with 1Tb user capacity on each with couple of user shares. Running out of space on it

Im looking to get a R510 12 bay x 1tb with server 2008 installed on RAID1 and have the rest of the 9 drives on a RAID 6 + 1 hot spare, And have all the user shares on it which can be mapped on the users workstations

Or should i go with something like starwinds san installed on server 2008.

Thanks in advance
