I'd like to aquire some cheap hardware to act as a file server and SQL Server (or MySQL) host. Are there NAS solutions out there that support SQL Server these days?
Any recommendations are appreciated!
Thx,

iOmega has some great NAS such as StorCenter ix4-200d which can be NAS or iSCSI.  It can replicate SQL databases if you have 2 units

I'm just looking for one device to host a SQL database. Can iOmega StorCenter ix4-200d do that?

It'll hold the data but it won't run the SQL executables, even a Windows Storage Server based NAS isn't licensed to run SQL (although it can).

All of them, for example http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF05a/12169-3798502-3954626-3954626-3954626-5031436.html?dnr=1 (Dell and IBM make them too). However running SQL on it is specifically excluded from the EULA except where the database is used as part of a storage application.
