NAS set-up for video production advice
on May 22, 2018 at 12:59:04 am

Greeting All,

Were a small video production company based in Brisbane Australia and looking at installing a NAS for video production and motion graphics. We have 2x 5k 2016 iMac's and often have additional editors on an adhoc basis. Were looking for centralised storage with fast speeds for 4k editing. I've done some research and 10gbe seems to the way to go. Below is the system we have spec'd up and my main question is if this NAS will offer fast enough speeds.

NAS - QNAP TS-831x-8G
Switch - Netgear ProSAFE XS708T
Drives - 8x Ironwolf 8tb - ST8000VN022
Thunderbolt to 10GBE convertors - Sonnet Twin 10G (Dual-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Thunderbolt 2 Adapter)

This NAS seems very cheap and I am concerned that because its not an AMD or intel processor it might not cut the mustard. Any advice would greatly received!

Also silly question, if the NAS hardware fails, does that mean all the data is lost? I know back-up to completely separate unit would be ideal however thats currently out of budget.

Thanks in advance!
