Q

Moving data during a specific timeframe

I've already made my proposal project but my scopes have changed. Is there a way to move 200GB daily from 150 users and six servers with a 100m network? I have a six-hour window to do that and I need wake up on LAN. I don't think that I can do this but some providers affirm that they can.
It can be done but there are many variables. The speed of your network is probably the most basic one. You must also consider how busy the servers are, how busy the network is and the speed of the storage for your NAS device. There are way too many to make a simple judgment about but you can do some homework or use a consultant/specialist to do the analysis and then determine what is possible.

Quite probably, there will be some recommendations that can make dramatic improvements that you should consider. The extra time or the money for the specialist might be well spent.
