Re: NAS appliances?
Potentially so, primarily depending on the switch. Better switches
can accommodate mixed speeds just fine and so the switch can divvy
up the available bandwidth 100Mbps for the first machine, 100Mbps
for the second and so on. However many low end switches aren't
really very good at this even if they are described as multi-mode
- it is one of the things that distinguish good switches from tat.
It is something that really you have to test in practice to see
exactly how well it works since 'this switch sucks' isn't something
that typically appears in technical specs.
