Are you hoping to edit off this storage or do you just need a place to archive to?

Best,
Andy

I think just storage After edit

Because they said Gigabit can't support live edit ..

BUt u know what I share My full HD footage and edit in network with
Edius .. it is realtime ..

So if Can then as a Edit Server If Cant then just a Storage server

Tim,
We also carry entry level NAS units that can expand and be used for video editing if you move into that realm for a need. Our entry NAS unit starts at $2449 using your own hard drives and fits 3 drives. Our NAS-Pro holds 4 drives internally, and expands to 28 drives if required. Our array's also hold SSD drives for read cache to increase performance. If you do need more of a storage array for video editing, our shArc unit is designed for editing. The NAS-Pro can be upgraded to a shArc if all you need is a basic file share for now, but then decided you wanted something to use for editing.
http://www.arcstorage.com you can build a configuration online for pricing, or email me for an official quote. Aaron@arcstorage.com

REPLY -
"they" are complete idiots. "They" do not know what they are talking about.

In addition to Aaron's response, AVID ISIS 5000, EditShare, Apace,
Small Tree, Studio Network Solutions, Maxx Digital, and others ALL
CAN SUPPORT LIVE EDIT, all using 1Gig ethernet. So your expert source is an idiot and should be slapped in the face. If you would like me to do this for you, I would be happy to do it for you, so that you are not arrested.

So if it support Giga

Then which one is more suitable for editing NAS

1) Qnap
2) synology

I saw the synology with 2411 - 24bay
but it dont support usb 3 and Sata 3 ( only sata 2)
Sata 3 will write as sata 2 I think ( the speed problem)
And it is just atom

will this affect our Full HD video editing

if this is OK I am going to get the 2411

Or Qnap 8 bay and Synology 8bay

any opinion

neither -
there are countless manufacturers of shared storage systems.
They all participate on Creative Cow. They are all active in the
SAN Networks forum. Some have their own forum.

QNAP, Synology, (and Drobo) are NOT shared storage systems.

There are no inexpensive ($2000) shared storage systems.

This is not a complete list, but the shared storage systems on the market that will allow you to edit from your shared drive volumes are -
Apple XSAN
AVID ISIS 5000
Studio Network Solutions
Small Tree
Apace Systems
Maxx Digital Final Share
Cal Digit Super Share
Rorke Data with Fibre Jet
Accusys Exasan
Facilis Terrablock
EditShare
MetaSAN and MetaLAN


and there are more. All work. All are not cheap.
QNAP is not one of them.

Tim,

Bob may be a little gruff, you get use to it and grow to love it! What he's saying is that just because it can handle storage and share files, does not mean that you can use it as a video editing solution. The storage array's that he's listing not only share storage, but also have management software that can handle video editing when you try to pull streams from them. A simple NAS is really designed to just be a storage repository and basically does really good at receiving files. When you edit and need to pull streams off your storage, you need not only horsepower but a hardware solution (ram,ssd,hd) and storage management software that helps increase performance and boosts the streams back to your editing station.
Bob provided a great list, and in the end there are many criteria that can help you make a decision.

1. Budget you can afford to spend now, and also factor in support/maintenance for 3-5yrs.
2. Functionality and features (does it just store data or does it have Raid, dedupe data, offer snapshots, can I choose my interconnect technology, can I use it with any back up software, can I use Rsync, does it replicate... etc...) Typically the more features it has, the more expensive it is, but that also means there's investment protection built in and could be a safer bet long term.

3. Ease of use
4. What is the expansion capabilities (will I outgrow it in 5-7yrs)
5. Support (hardware/software/nbd/same day etc)
6. Compatibility (hardware/software)

There are quite a few more items that could be added to the list, but all I'm saying is that it may be better for you to spend some time to decide what features you want to have, and see what fits your budget. The worst mistake you could make is to buy a Mustang when you could have bought a Porsche for a few bucks more, and get destroyed at the track!

Put it on the TRACK!
