The 1st problem you will tackle is latency and a single Gbit channel will be a concern with Latency. The larger the project ie more tracks along with lower the audio buffer , the greater the latency becomes an issue. I would highly suggest you look at 10Gbe for this since the latency will be allot lower. Netgear has a 8 port 10Gbe switch for $900 or under or 12 Port Switch for $2000 or under. Small Tree has 10Gbe network solutions via Thunderbolt. The Central Storage options are there with 10Gbe add on card options or built in with the higher end ISIS units. Either way I would plan the infrastructure first and then look at storage options that fit. You can work on Gbit but the transport response time will be slow and lower audio buffers are not going to work.
