Thank you guys for all the reply.

Like you, I'm not sold to the idea of using the XIV as a video production SAN...

You may not know it but the thing is a beast with sky rocking specs. Some call it the IBM Enterprise flagship SAN as it uses dual 20Gbps infiniband and dual 600Gbps Infiniband switches to interconnect each storage unit and the overall bandwidth can achieve 9.1Gbps reads / 6.8Gbps writes.

As it cost nothing, I will conduct some test with the XIV to see how it performs and what kind of latency I get.

I need to know what is the usual latency and acceptable limit on SAN used for video production storage. Is 17ms too high?
