"Samba is a Brazilian musical genre derived from African and European roots" (quoted from, but in this post there's only Samba in IT field.

Could you play Samba at very high speed?

Someone already did it ;)

Volker showed how to get more than 700MB/sec from Samba using smbclient
and a modern Samba server, which shows what you can really do when you
understand the protocol thoroughly and don't feel you have to invent
a new one (SMB2 :-).

Sounds better than NFS. I'm eager to try that. Contact me if you like to do some tests.
