I was curious how everyone was tackling File Sharing in a mixed environment and what the best practices would be. I have an Active Directory Master with an Open Directory Master bound to it. I am wondering specifically what the best method for adding storage is without creating a bottleneck through one Gigabit port (recognizing we dont have the budget to implement Fibre). I have explored every possibility from the traditional "buy a Mac Pro and load server software to share the raid array w/ permissions" to the crafty "build a cheap linux box and use something like Netatalk to share the array as AFP". Also, how do you handle hardware/software failures for file sharing on a budget? Much obliged to those who have gone before me.
