Question regarding Aperture, NAS and Drobo

Drobo recently released a much faster network device called the Drobo 5n. The 5n replaces the Drobo FS which was a terribly slow NAS.

After a bit of research it seems there may be issues if an Aperture library or vault is stored on a NAS. Based on this I wouldn't consider keeping the library or vault on a NAS or Drobo 5n. However, it is unclear whether there are issues if the Aperture library or vault are kept on local drives and the referenced files are kept on the NAS.

My question is whether anyone has any experience storing referenced files on a NAS, specifically a Drobo 5n and whether there are any issues one should be aware of.

Thanks.
