Hi All,

Can anyone here suggest, which type of LUN or file share is better to store a large number of files (~2-3 million) of recorded voice & scanned documents in iSCSI NAS?

I'm considering between NFS share or Samba since the application server is running Windows, then I will use Robocopy to migrate files into the file share for 5 years archival.

Thanks in advance.
