Mac Shop needs speed on Network to open large files
Posted on 2013-11-20
Have a client that has about 10 mac's and are getting a new server. Client asked if they switch from a Windows 2012 Server to a Mac "server" would it be any faster? They want speed speed speed. I would figure that a full blown server with a RAID array and 15k drives would be the fastest solution, but what about opening large graphic files over the network?
I'm not a mac guy, but want to give our clients the best/fastest solution (yeah yeah yeah, I know best and fastest can be 2 separate worlds). I know Mac's dont have a "server" anymore, but just the Server OS.
Is there a way to tweak a windows server to be more/better/faster for a Mac-centric network?
