[Oliver Peters] "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."

I'm not saying it can't be done, obviously it is being done. When you buy a SAN system today, most likely, the file structure will not be HFS+, and the controller won't have to run OSX.

[Oliver Peters] "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."

Right. It's the Google Docs model. Still, with video, it's going to be hard to do so unless you can upload a wad of proxies. I agree that FCPX's structure with and a little more time and effort, could be very well poised for this workflow should the necessity present itself.
