I am going to be setting up a couple of servers in the near future and
these servers will have ever increasing storage needs..
One server will be a web/file server and the other will be a mail server..

the servers use a shared storage facility that runs RAID and that
capacity can be increased as needed.. Preferably using ATA or SATA
drives to keep the cost down..

expensive for our limited budget..
I have also thought of NAS but I am not sure the access over
NFS/ethernet will be fast enough.. Even gigabit ethernet may become a
bottleneck.. I guess I could put a gig ethernet link between each server
and the storage server so each server has a dedicated gig ethernet
Anyway I guess you get the idea about what I am trying to do..
Has anyone setup something similar that didn't cost massive amounts of
