          There is no universal answer to your question. It depends on your storage interface and where it can be attached to. Windows and Macs use different file systems, for instance. If you are planning on providing a typical or classic network storage, keep in mind that users cannot open a file that is already open by another user.

            Can you give more information? What kind of file are you sharing that requires multiple connections. Samba is pretty universal for Windows and Mac but there are restrictions for some files to be opened at the same time. I have an old Foxpro app (that is being retired) lot of users using on a Samba share but security is out the window with old 16 bit apps. So samba is pretty easy to implement.

            As for storage hardware, Oracle has a storage array "Sun ZFS Storage 7120 Appliance" that I use in my datacenter and it works really good and is very easy to manage.
