Sharepoint file server+Collaboration
Any one worked SP for file sharing? I need to work on a solution to use our existing Netapp with Sharepoint. Currently its just AD sharing, but we needed more, file versioning, collaboration etc. Would love to hear some ideas!

How do you use a NAS with SharePoint? short of storing the SharePoint DB on the NAS, but the front end is on the Windows server.
Seems like Netapp has an option. SnapManager software enables automatic placement of files and BLOBs on SMB (CIFS) shares outside of the content database to improve the scalability of large SharePoint deployments.
I am checking on various option to use our existing Netapp SMB/CIFS shares with a SP kind of tool which will enable users to collaborate. Owncloud is another option I could think of, but need to check the enterprise version i guess, as on the community, I couldn't find SMB/CIFS.
I might need to change the title from SP to any solution which can help me setup a document library with collaboration, revision features!
Has anyone tried Gladinet? http://www.gladinet.com/
Currently checking gladinet. I am thinking of Gladinet+Pertino for file sharing, provided I get a decent speed via Pertino. Still working with Pertino support to sort the speed issue
Gladinet seems to be pretty good, almost 30 minutes, I was able to plug in gladinet to tier up with our test AD and netapp shared drive, and publish already enabled home folders for users by importing from AD to gladinet. Now testing that with Pertino installed home machine. So far I am happy, need to deep dive into Gladinet and see the features.
On a side note, I think this will work well with desktop clients with Pertino, but not sure how this can be accomplished via Pertino smarphone client? Is there any way I could connect Perino mobile client to the network and use the local browser/gladinet app to identify my remote server?
