What exactly are CIFS streams and is there a white paper on it? And, how do you compare it to NFS? Does DAFS support streams?
As far as I can tell, there is not a special technology called "CIFS streaming." Now it may be possible to transfer streams of multimedia data over a CIFS connection but I do not believe CIFS offers a QoS mechanism that would give special treatment to certain data types.
