    NAS for Windows Hosting

    I am thinking of implementing NAS for storing the data of my windows hosting servers. While googling, I found that there is an open source software called FreeNAS which can be used to build own NAS. However, I am not sure if I can use it to store data of my windows hosting which require NTFS permissions to be given and also to store MS SQL database files. The reason for it is FreeNAS is based on FreeBSD. Can anybody let me know if I can use it for Windows hosting? Also let me know if it can be also used to store backups of Windows servers?

    Easy answer is that you can get a NAS with Windows Storage Server installed on it. HP and Dell have these as well as many others.
