We are searching for a new fileserver system.

The conditions are:

1. We need redundancy I.e HA/mirroring/etc. (we currently have a single overloaded file server)

2. Increasing the bandwidth from the server to the building infrastructure. The building infrastructure is limited to 1Gb in the walls. We are looking at a multiple server solution with distributed data delivery to overcome this limitation.

3. Improved performance on the server itself

4. Data is often large individual files ( > 10GB )

5. Sharing is done via CIFS, NFS and Samba/cifs

We currently have a bid for the following hardware.

Question: Is there a better hardware solution than the one offered?
