FreeNAS is our go-to NAS solution. BYO or buy a commercially supported box from ixSystems.

Sorry to jump in on your thread but what would people recommend for shared drives for all teaching resources and student resources? about 1100 users in total on network but around 500 computers. Do the QNAP's play nicely with CC4?

For heavily used shares, either file servers or big multi-drive enterprise NAS or SAN. I wouldn't use a regular NAS for this.
We use a pair of DFS-R Server 2012 servers with lots of discs, just for the shares. Fast enough, but wouldn't go for less.

For 500 computers and 1100 users you need a more serious piece of kit or you will have serious latency and performance issues, particularly if you are using folder redirection.

Otherwise, you could keep costs down by using DAS with a lot of SAS drives connected to an existing server.
