Shared storage - between schools
I work between 2 primary schools and HDD space is becomming an issue. With the children now podcasting, video editing etc. I have a couple of NAs drives for backups but i'm going to run out of room within 12 months on my server shares etc.
So I have been looking into iSCSI drives, mainly at a qnap ts-809 with 8 x 2tb drives.
Now i'm thinking if I was to setup a trust between the 2 schools (both server 2008) I could share the iSCSI device. Thus saving my schools from having to purchase 1 each. The ts-809 should give me more than enough storage.
Has anyone done this before? Any caveat's / no-no's ? I assume I can lock down specific area's depending on ACL?
I havent dealt with Server trusts before so any advice would be appreciated.
