I received this from 2 degrees Frost.
And I am wondering if anyone could tell me if this is a good way to running running three edit suites and 4 laptops or iMacs. I have a diagram of the following if anyone would like to see it.

REPLY -
is this a trick question ? You want to run THREE edit suites, and their proposal on the top line says FOR 2 EDITING SUITES. Is this a typo from them, or you ?

I have more comments below which I will comment on - you will see my comments when you see REPLY -



2ºFROST SATA-SAN NETWORKED VIDEO STORAGE SOLUTION FOR 2 EDITING SUITES
PLUS MEDIA OFFICE

VLAN’D SWITCH -ONE MAC PRO PER VLAN +

XSERVE FEEDING BOTH GIG-E PORTS ON SATASAN STORAGE
REPLY - so are you providing the Apple XServe ?



VLAN 1 VLAN 2 GIG-E SATA-SAN STORAGE AREA NETWORK - RAW ETHERNET
WITH NO IP NO.’S IP GIG-E NETWORK FOR FINAL CUT SERVER AND MEDIA
OFFICE FILE SHARING
REPLY - so are you providing Final Cut Server software ?



2 degrees frost Xserve running 2ºFrost Software Stack feat. MetaSAN, FC Server + Appleshare SATA-SAN TS15000 10TB RAIDED TURNKEY STORAGE

REPLY - so I assume (I ASSUME) that they will use MetaSAN software as well as Final Cut Server software for this application - is this what you asked for ?


Mac Pros running 2ºFrost Software Stack feat. MetaSAN > 100MBytes/sec wire speed into storage each VLAN

REPLY - it sure looks like their AoE SAN system, using MetaSAN as the user interface, but what the hell do I know. Does this look right ? I don't know - have you called 2degreesfrost and asked for an explanation. I ASSUME that this will work, but ultimately this is the responsibility of 2degreesfrost. I don't know anyone that is using their system, and there are no press releases on their website of their success stories with video clients, so I don't know. I would sure love to hear about someone using this AoE system.
