I am thinking of using iSCSi to establish a new drive. I have option of using the mapping hard drive with from network path or I can setup iSCSi.
I am using a NAS on RAID 5 with 2TB. I will be allocating approx 100GB(will expand the size as time goes by 20GB increment). This partition will be accessed by everyone approximate between 10 to 20 users. This partition will be used heavily(high IOs) and daily.
Should I setup iSCSi over network mapping? What are the Pros and Cons of using iSCSi and mapped network drive? I did some research online which most favors the iSCSi. I wish to confirm again to ensure that if iSCSi is the better choice. Thanks
