Just making the switch from Davinci 8 to 9 finally, and trying to work out whether to go disk or database.
We have two resolve suites, and have historically had our server computer running the postgresql database for both those machines.
We plan to keep our server as the central location for davinici projects, but I wanted to know if anyone has any experience in a set up like this.
My inclination is to go disk, just because the files are more 'tangible', even though there is no read only access style feature as in davinci 8 databases. Our operators would seldom be working on the same project at the same time. Any reason not to go disk for us?
If you go DISK you cannot connect from other systems to that database. Each system will be an island unto itself. I just don't see any advantage to that in a typical multi-user environment, but I suppose if you never need access to projects, galleries, power windows, users, etc... from one system to the other then it wouldn't get in the way, but it's pointlessly limiting, imho.
