Best File Server for Windows, Linux and OSX Environment
Posted on 2013-11-17
We are looking to merge 2 schools but between them we have Windows, Linux and MAC OSX operating systems. Students will need to see their 'homedrive' no matter which OS they log in to. They will also require access to a shared area where team/shared files can be located and finally a data library type area where general catalogue type info can be read (e.g. class notes, parts catalogues etc).
Is there a single file server that could be used to achieve this?
One School is a MS Windows ONLY systems; the other has a mix os's. Windows will be the main OS in use by the clients, but the other OS's are essential for specific classes.
We have had SAMBA as an interconnect but was wondering what others may recommend.
