Setting up an edit network
on Jul 8, 2011 at 1:20:03 am

So I run a small post house... working with FCP.

I have three workstations and up until now have kept projects organized on hot-swappable firewire drives.

But now I need a solution that is shared over the network... preferably a wireless network, but possibly not.

Keeping in mind price is an issue, what lower cost solutions are you guys using?

I have thought of running a mac tower I have as a shared computer with all the drives on, then having all other computers networked to it... is that going to be fast enough over an airport extreme network?

I will point you to two forums here on the cow where your question is best answered:

First, check out "SAN- Storage Area Networks", and then try "Arrays & Raid SetUP".

Be warned that Bob Zelin prowls those forums and you just might get a taste of his "shotgun".

Quick answer to your question: No, you can't do that! It's gonna cost you some money to achieve
a workable solution. The good news is that the cost is going down.

Good luck.
