RAID6 for MBP
on Dec 7, 2010 at 2:01:47 am

I'm currently using 6 CalDigit VR Firewire external drives daisy chained to my MBP via FW800. 5 are mirrored for protection of P2 footage and still photos....one is a protected RAID for small edit projects in FCP. I'm looking for a single storage solution (RAID6?)that can give me protection and also some speed for the few minor edit projects I do. Thanks for your input!

John,

We have a product coming soon that would fit the bill, but I can't think of anything off the top of my head at the moment, except maybe something possibly from Drobo....

This is what we have in the works.
SOHORAID SR5

Hope that helps for what it's worth.

Thanks for the update Jon....most likely going to pick one up. Let me know where to get it...I'm in South FL. Also, wanted to make sure it writes in the 150-200 Megs/Sec range for editing. Any place on the site you post the specs?

Cheers,
John

Hey John, throughput is going to depend on the RAID level you use as well as I/O. I'd need to check our testing results to give you a firm answer on that.

An ExpressCard 34mm to eSATA would be needed for eSATA on your MacBook Pro.

You're welcome to email us.

Thanks Jon,

I'd like to have a RAID6 config, but at least a RAID 5. I'll probably use the FW 800 when offloading P2 footage and editing (the express34 slot will be used for my Matrox MX02) and the eSATAfor Canon offload. I do currently have the express card to eSATA adapter.
