SAN Location on a NAS speed test vs sparse disk image

Little bit about our setup.

10GBE using Bob Zelin's awesome Netgear solution with ATTO Thunderlink boxes. Server is a Proavio 16 drive Mini SAS Array.
This is a 2012 iMac running Mavericks. Server is NOT on Mavericks.

Connected to the Array via NFS instead of AFP.

This is a blackmagic speed test screen grab of a project on sparse disk image.


This is a folder of the same project, mounted as a SAN location.


It's faster. FCPX works better on Mavericks. Still testing things.

I have an Apple TV tv mounted in my office. Edit 2 was just able to extend it's desktop via Airplay to my office Apple TV. We then set FCPX to use that Extended desktop as playback monitor. Edit 2 is a 2011 iMac, the Apple TV is the older 720p version, and we do not have the current year model Apple Airport Extreme with wireless AC. Playback was about 90% good with a couple of glitchy spots.

I suspect that with newer/faster/stronger hardware this will be flawless. When it is, I'll be able to 'sit in' on any suite that is currently in edit without leaving my desk. This is awesome.

John,

You can do that today with Apple Remote desktop.

You've air played a second monitor from a mac and extended fcpx to it? Extended desktop is new to Mavericks. Before it would screw with your main display's resolution I believe.

Were you still able to use the NFS method with your server on Mavericks too. All my computers are on Mavericks now including my server and I want to use the NFS method so FCPX can see the drive.

Let me know if you had success. Thanks

Jeff

We gave up on it for a little while but might be trying it again this weekend as SMB2 instead. I'll post more info when I can.
