Apache - how many connections does apache create when accessing Htdocs from network storage?

Hi,

I am looking at running apache on one machine while hosting the HTDOCS on a separate NAS or Windows File Server.

The NAS drives I am looking at have a concurrent connection limit of 256. Does that mean I can only serve 256 concurrent users on the website?

In other words, will Apache create a separate connection to the file share for each website user?

Thank you

Should be one connection per apache thread. Maybe one per virtual host? Nothing to back this up, just what makes sense to me
