The out of the box Linux and Samba configs are not going to get you the best performance they can deliver. Building a system like this is going to take a lot of expertise. Things you need to look at (off the top of my head): kernel network settings, samba configurations, file system configuration, IP network tuning. This isn't a couple of quick things someone can tell you to do over a forum -- you're going to need to spend a good bit of time reading, learning, experimenting and testing to get the most out of the system. And after you do all of that, the hardware itself may not be up to what you want as Bob mentioned.

You are probably going to need to balance two different costs:
1. The cost of your time to learn all of the different skills to build this yourself and make it work.
2. The cost to hire someone that does know all of this and can get it done quickly.

Of course, as Bob said, you may be end having to buy new/proper hardware to get the results you need.

Hope that helps.
