We're running a couple of Editstor ES systems in Avid shared project workflows right now with very good success. One is a 16TB standalone chassis with 5 client connections directly into two 4 port internal gigE cards, so no switch. The other is a 64TB ES which is made up of a 32TB head unit & a 32TB expansion with 10gigE connectivity into a 24 port switch. That one has 8 clients connected, all dual-pathed or "bonded" connections for extra bandwidth. FYI, with that config quad split multicam at DNx175X works flawlessly over 2 gigE cables.

Project sharing works exactly as everyone's used to with Unity, and overall reliability & stability has been very good. We did have a drive failure last week in one of the chassis but the array rebuilt in the background without anybody noticing a difference. Archion support staff were great - very quick to respond. Overall, Editstor has been a very positive experience for us, even though some of the Editors and especially AEs were quite skeptical going in as they're all used to working on Unity.
