You want a rack server capture solution?

Thats really not going to work well.

Unless you capture only via FW you need a capture card like a Kona Card, or some sort of IO device, the problem you are going to run into there is the drivers for those devices are written for the regular MacOS and therefore will probably have issues running on a ServerOS.

Besides you don't want to be capturing with the server hardware itself anyway.

The normal way to set something like this up would be to have a MacPro with your capture card for a capture station, this MacPro would be connected to a to a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device. Then other edit stations can also connect to the NAS to access and edit the captured footage.

If you really want a rack mounted server to host this NAS, the xSan is still available and will be for a little over 2 more months.
