I am in similar solution and I have just bumped my head on my data storage ceiling!

I run a small film company and of course we shoot digital. I have a single drive that I use to store rushes and then a scratch disc for FCP where all the files are 'logged and transferred" to.

Neither is a raid drive which is not very secure, but at least I do have two copies of the original content just to be sure, but I'd still like a better solution.

I have a couple of small raids, to which, from time to time I archive older projects, but I am right out of space and need to find a really good solution.

I can see 4/6TB G-TEch raids and LAcies raids for sale for around £450 ($600) here in UK, but I am pretty sure that I will fill a 6TB raid in a few short months, so what to do? The cloud is not really a solution for this much data - too slow.

IS the best solution to walk the drives round to an offsite data centre and dump the material off an pay for data storage?

I'd really like to hera about an affordale solution for all this data...
