I'm looking for advice or some help. We're testing a new Storage System (MXF SERVER) at our office and i need to figure out ways to test it before we commit to buy. We are a post facility that uses avid, adobe creative cloud, and final cut pro. Does anyone know what i should be testing for? So far we're testing for:
1. speed of throughput
2. File copy performance
4. write and read performance
5. concurrent users
6. dropped frames (how many?)
7. we're also having our artists and editors run a few heavy projects.
Does anyone know of a proof of concept i can read of storage systems?
any help is greatly appreciated!
