Hi Guys,

I work a a small gallery, we have about 5 iMacs, a couple of laptops, a few ipads / iphones and right now we're working off 2 Synology DS212j NAS drives attached to our Airport Extreme. The iMacs are all hardwired to the network through a gigabit switch. One of the NAS Drives is set to clone to the other so we're really just using one. The other is a backup.

We are not very happy with the current situation. Access to the NAS is slow and sparadic, we often get hang ups and disconnections and frankly, we just want a faster solution.

All we do is file share files, but we do have another office in Germany so it would be nice if we have VPN capabilities or some sort of remote access. Hey, if it can sync with Dropbox - all the better.

What would you intellegent individuals recommend?

Should we purchase a Mac Mini server and attach it to a Raid 5 drive?

Should we buy a Drobo or another higher end NAS?

Or do you think the problem is not with the NAS but with the airport extreme (that's basically made for home internet use and not for intense file sharing)

Any ideas would be welcome.

Thank you
