Large Storage solution needed
on Aug 30, 2013 at 6:11:57 am

I work at an small ad agency and we are constantly working on old projects as well as ingesting new footage from shoots and such. I do everything in-house, and deliver for broadcast, so I work in full-res prores HQ on almost everything (I work in FCP7). Because of this, I need a very large amount of storage that is always online (I need to recall footage from 3 years ago etc. frequently).

Currently I have 3 rack-mounted Drobo 800fs 's with I believe 16TBs each. The performance is horrible, has always been horrible, and is getting worse as they fill up (two of them are near capacity. Anyway, I may have finally convinced the powers that be to pay for a true editing storage solution, and I wanted to pick the Cow's brain for solutions. I have been checking out the HDPro24 from CalDigit and ActiveRAIDes. Has anyone used these? Do you know of better/cheaper solutions? Any help would be great. Thank you.
