Hi rbatte1

Thanks for your feedback.
I have been working with our system integration team to determine the type of storage and finally have decided on using external NAS Gold storage for the FTPS server.
The advantage of external NAS storage is it can be mounted onto both the FTPS server and the application server via NFS.

Then what I intend to do is test transfers from application server to the FTPS servre NAS storage using 2 methods:

(1) Copy large files from the application server to the FTPS NAS storage via the NFS mount point on the local application server itself and benchmark the latencies.

(2) FTP the same large files from the application server to the FTPS NAS storage via the NAS mount point on the FTPS server using rsync/lftp. Latencies are once again recorded and compared with the benchmarked latencies from previous method.

This way I will get a clear picture of which is a faster option, whether to ftp to remote NAS storage or to copy to remote NAS storage via NFS mount.
I will update you of my observations once I have the servers, storage provisioned and am able to perform my tests.

thanks
