Hello,

we are looking into setting up an editing station using a quad core mac and a Kona 3 w/breakout box. We are planning on getting an Xraid with 7X500gb drives. Or were planning, until someone said that we may need to get either 14X250gb or 14X500gb as the Kona needs all 14 drives in the raid to write uncompressed. Is there any consensus on this, or is it a non issue?

Thank you in advnace for your help in this matter,

-saul m

dude, if you plan on doing uncompressed HD, fully populate that Raid.

Just curious, why XRaid? You are planning uncompressed HD I take it?

We are planning to have the option for that. A lot of work will be done for web, but we'll need to have the option to deliver at uncomp. HD.

Well, there are plenty of other options out there that will give you more bang for your buck. I'd give Huge Systems and Medea a look for price and performance. One fully populated Xserve is barley enough. Plus, the support from Huge Systems (I have one of their raids) is great.

i work on an Xraid with 8 250GB drives striped in a RAID5+0 and it's fast enough to do 1080 10bit. i've only ever captured footage and layed off graphic element reels at that resolution, but um yeah it works. even for SD I would buy the extra drive and do a RAID5+0. there is a significant speed increase.
