Hi Jay,

As far as virtual volumes go, you can create a virtual volume structure very easily in Space by using Projects. Each project is a different 'volume' on the desktop, furthermore you can quota these and change the quota at a later date. This gives you the same functionality as virtual volume in a much more flexible and open way.

Space currently does not support AFP - we have 100% Mac companies and mixed platform companies using Space with NFS without any problems. Another option for companies who need more controls for their users is implementing CIFS.

We have been installing fibre solutions for over 15 years. Last Fall we installed the first Xsan using mac mini's as metadata controllers with Lion in a live post-production environment in the country (a pretty cool video case study will be at the Promise booth at NAB) - fibre is still a relevant and useful technology. But when a client is looking to build their first shared solution, a high-speed GbE NAS solution like Space is our automatic first suggestion. It has the best value with the lowest maintenance and greatest flexibility/scalability.

Let me know what additional type of information you would like on Space and I can provide it.
