Video archive structure and process?
on Mar 4, 2013 at 9:27:56 pm

We are trying to get a handle on archive and backup of our projects.

We have 6 editing machines (FCP and Premiere)
A few years back we dropped a ton of money into the apple final cut server (which they could never get working) and now just use the SAN as our main editing / storage. (we have around 50 TB)

We also have a Drobo that we use to mirror some of that. But we are running out of space again and figured there has to be a better more thought out way to approach this.

Whats the "Right" way to do this? In my head it's something like.
SAN = All the LIVE projects + last 6 months of closed projects
DROBO = projects closed 6 months - 1 year ago
TAPE = All projects greater than 1 year, copied to 2 tapes. 1 Kept local, 1 Kept remote.

But I have no Idea if there is a "Right" way.

Thank you!
