Please pay attention to Cristian's message in another thread.
Putting mysql files on the NAS is a really bad idea. Performance
will be awful.

Yup, I suspect that ISCSI+ a fast network might be a working
alternative, however I remain unconvinced that mysql will work both
fast and safely over CIFS,

OK, lets say I give up on the notion of using the NAS to store data
managed by MySQL. I got this thing on the recommendation of the
guy I know who works as a sysadmin, among other things. I'd hate to
think I wasted my all too limited resources. So what can I use it
for? What sorts of practical applications represent something that
proves the value of a NAS?

If you can reconfigure it to offer iSCSI or NFS, you'd have a much
more useful box.

He would still be running his MYSQL daemon on a different box than his
NAS, which is the root of the problem. A hell of a lot of data
running across a limited bandwidth. iSCSI and NFS can't get around

iSCSI on plain GiGE does very well.
