We are a small operation of 2-3 editing stations for a the media dpt of a non-profit. We have about 15TB to 20TB of footage that we want to keep online and accessible to all stations. The computers vary from Macbook Pros and a tower all with an OS of around 10.7+
We are transitioning from FCP 7 to Premiere Pro and will probably purchase a new Macbook once that transition happens.
I'd like to set up each station with its own RAID 5 storage for reading, and a separate drive for writing. The RAIDS would be clones. Most of the computers we use now do not have thunderbolt ports but anything we'd buy in the future would. It seems to me we'd want the ability to daisychain.
So... Is there a great drive out there that will connect to my older systems but to a future souped up mac as well? (IE firewire & thunderbolt)
