I currently have a Windows 2012 x64 server being used as a Fileserver for 100 users and looking for a better solution, the Fileserver is a Virtual machine running on ESX 6.7 and accesses an EqualLogic SAN.

I need::

1. 99.9% uptime as the current single Fileserver has failed a few times.
2. Good access speed for all 100 users.
3. Support for long pathnames.
4. NTFS folder and file permissions from Active Directory

Thanks
