Multiple Smoke Setups (MAC)

Hi Guys

Need some advice, so if I set up Multiple Smoke on Macs 2013s+ what is the best way to do this, here is the workflows we will be looking at

1- Not having to work on the same project at the same time
2- Have any of the macs be able to open a project
3- Speed is the essence here
4- All HD no RED (Saying that who knows what can come in)
5- If a job was done on "Smoke 1" and a change needed to be done but Smoke 1 was busy how would "Smoke 2" pick up the job ?

So the question is storage really, do we

1- Have Bitchin Promise Attached to each Mac
2- Have smalltree and have a folder for each MediaPool for the Smoke

What are people doing for Multi_Seats ? I see Brian has done a great walk through but i am looking at this as a "offline" ?

This is not a tomorrow problem and we would more then likely move forward once AutoDesk have a fix for Mavericks so that would be 5 x MacPro 12 cores and then Storage is the sticking point here, Monitoring would be with a BMD or AJA solution.

Cheers guys
