External RAID system recommendation for a Final Cut 7 setup

Hi, just wondering if anyone has a great suggestion for an External RAID system recommendation for a Final Cut 7 setup. This workstation would use FCP 7 and FCP X for 1080i editing with an KONA 3G AJA card.
Thanks for your time.

What's your budget? And RAID for speed (RAID 0), protection (RAID 1), or combo of both (RAID 5)?

Hi Shane,
Thanks for the response. We're looking for RAID 0.....
Budget: 7-10k.

Finally, someone with realistic numbers.

How about 32TB for under $9k?

Hi James,

If you're editing over the Ethernet wire, check out Small Tree's Titanium box.

Either a Titanium 4 or a TitaniumZ-5 would suffice for you.

I'd be happy to talk to you in detail about your workflow, and consult for you if you'd like to give me a ring.

Without knowing a whole bunch of details about your workflow, at a first glance, you could stand to look at a bunch of these types of setups, but you still need to make sure whatever you want to buy will perform to the standards you'll need your video streams to run at without fail....either over 1GbE or 10GbE, which may yet be left to determine.

Let us know.

Thanks,
