I am a big fan of NFS because it's more stable than SMB and it supports hard links. But we do have many clients who use mixed workflows over SMB and I can say that FCP X editing performance over SMB equals that of NFS.

I did find that file copies over NFS are much faster. These are two screenshots I made recently when remotely testing a large Jellyfish Rack setup with 70 FCP X users at one of our clients in Switzerland (not Swiss national tv). You can see that transfer speeds between NFS shares are much stabler (fewer traffic drops) and that average transfer speeds are higher (370MB/s over SMB and 500 MB/s over NFS).



The Jellyfish (even the small Mobile) runs FCP X Libraries straight off the server without any issues. I actually don't know any of our clients who do NOT keep their FCP X Libraries or their Premiere Pro project files and cache on their Jellyfish. We can do this because we use advanced hi-level caching in all of our systems.

Relinking files on a Jellyfish is exactly the same as relinking files on a direct attached drive, no matter f you use NFS or SMB. If you are at NAB next week, I will be happy to demo this. We are at the Frame io booth on the floor, in our demo suite at the Encore (send me an e-mail if you want to come and visit: ronny@lumaforge.com), and at the Faster Together Stage: https://lumaforge.com/nab
