    Hi all... wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a file server solution. We have a Mac mini macOS Server in a data closet, 10GbE running to the rack.

    Are there any solutions that I can manage using macOS Server? So I can just grant access using the accounts I've created on there?

    I've been looking more into Synology and QNAP NAS systems, and they seem pretty tempting as well.

    A little info about us... I work for a department in a university... so we will have about 100 users, of which less than 10% will eventually be using this every day.

    Any thoughts?

    OS X Server offers built in File Sharing, and you can control permissions by specific users or by groups. I may be missing your question entirely so please let me know if I am.
