Basically wanting to know if this can even be done? I would love to know if anyone has even tried to do this or has successfully done this? The two major issues im running into is basically how to set one up that would enable games to be run remotely off the server, for a personal LAN or W-LAN room, Which operating systems would be best to have this on, I already know about harddrive speeds and the importance of a Gigabyte speed network card/cables, otherwise I would get some seriously major lag in gaming, but from all the research i've tried to find online, i cannot find a decent tutorial, or even a how-to for gaming use.
After seeing this video here
I saw that this dude uses a synology NAS server, which he has 10 2TB harddrives in it I believe, with all 4 of his PCs running the same game, which made me wonder if he is actually using the synology nas server to hold the games, while he logs into the server via client protocols on the other machines? for me, i have some 200 games or more, and obviously i cannot install every single game on my machine, but on a server like that, i would, and streaming them for lan parties and such would be VERY beneficial instead of having to optain 3 or 4 copies of every game, or having to install the games on every single machine.
At colleges there is no software (ie. ms office) that is installed on the few 100 local machines on the network, its all run via the server, so if anyone has any idea on how to do this, where to start? or even has any experience with terminal servers or NAS servers, i would really appreciate your input on this
