Hi Rick -
as you know, a SAN does not cost $60,000 anymore. Your Final Share system was under $20,000.

But I know what you want - you want what everyone wants - to spend zero money. Well, this is your answer. But a single 3TB Hitachi drive and stick it in each MAC computer. You will have a ton of storage, and with rates over 120MB/sec per drive, you will have no issue doing ProRes422HQ with your internal disk drive. Look how much money I just saved you.

Being associated with Final Share, which is the cheapest shared storage system in the world, I know that NOTHING is cheap enough, unless it's free (or costs 200 bucks). No, you can't do shared storage for 200 bucks, or 600 bucks, or even $1500 bucks.

Just get some internal drives, (you can even get them from OWC) and go to work. Those SATA card/external box combinations from OWC really suck compared to any professional product. Save your money - but the internal drives, and call it a day. Come back when you can buy a real car.
