2-NIC NAS support 2 inside LANs?
We are setting up a proof-of-concept in-house network (that will also be our "real" network... just overkill for our actual need...).
In a DMZ LAN we'll have a pair of email servers configured for failover. They are to share a NAS for email queue and mailbox storage.
In the local LAN, we need a NAS for file serving.
I'm looking at all these NAS boxes that have 2 gigabit NICs...and thinking maybe I can accomplish two goals with one NAS.
Do any and/or all vendors (Thecus, QNAP, Synology, Netgear, etc) with multi-NIC boxes support the following?
- NAS service on two physically separate LANs
- ability to offer same and/or different shares on the two LANs (I'm mostly interested in SMB, although we seem to be adding some Macs to our mix.)
Or... do I need to have two NASes?
Ideally, I'd like to offer an "email" share on the DMZ, and all shares (including the email partition) on the inside LAN (which would also simplify our backup system a bit)
Your thoughts and experiences with this mucho appreciated!
