[Jeremy Garchow] " The hardware part is fairly easy"

And dirt cheap. Easy for Apple simply to send you to Promise, G-Tech or LaCie. No value-add or profit margins for Apple.

[Jeremy Garchow] "Apple's file system (HFS+) is not best suited for a SAN architecture"

While this is totally true, there are quite a few facilities in the world that are using Apple File Protocol over Gig-E and 10Gig-E as roll-your-own NAS/SAN installations. Use a Mac Pro or Mac Mini as a server. Connect storage to it locally (now via Thunderbolt 2). Network your edit workstations to the Mac Pro/Mac Mini server using standard ethane networking protocol.

Excluding video and looking at project files, documents, photos and sound, it would seem that Apple is building out the iCloud structure to support this type of collaboration. There are also a number of companies moving into the "cloud" media model - Sony Ci, Frame io, A-frame, etc.
