What is a good NAS or storage server that will support file sharing of windows & mac

Hi Experts,

Does anyone have hands-on experience on a good NAS or Windows Storage server?

What we have are as follows:
6 Mac users, running 10.8(1x), 10.9(4x) and 10.10(1x)
6 Windows users, running Windows 7 Pro

mac users sharing 7TB from 2 usb external hard drives

Windows users are sharing using peer to peer, one user being the host.

2x networking printers



Looked at Western Digital Sentinel DX4200, Synology DS1513+ , QNAP TS-469

Read the reviews and hope the experts here give some recommendations base on life experience.

Thanks in advance



We just deployed a QNAP TS-EC1279U-RP With 12x 4Tb drives in RAID10 and I have to say "I am impressed with the performance and functionality of the devise i also communicated with support as I had a couple of questions about the RAID build time and IOPS which the QNAP support team responded quickly and professionally"

I can unfortunately not give you any advise on the other devices.

Hi, DirkMare, thanks for your help.

Could your product support: Mac users with different os versions sharing folders/files with decent user management apps? likewise for the Windows users?



Freenas or windows server is good. I use windows server for easy intergration



Yes it can you can also use the device as a Timecapsule backup for Mac
