Ray, did you say that you are currently on a 100Mbit LAN? If so, why not just try Gigabit first?

Then, if you need extra speed start looking at system bus limitations, system speed, processor
speed, and possibly adding a RAID (SAN/NAS) to the remote server.

There's a lot of ways to speed up remote data access.
