it a normal world it should work fine, but it all depends on the users, the file sizes, the frequency, and the connection between the users and the file server. I'm running file servers with TB's of data and 1000's of users on vm's without any issues, but the san and server are all in the same building as 75% of the users and they all have 1GB connections to the network.
