AM I looking for SAN and thinking NAS?
I have a G5 dual 2.0 with the fiber over ethernet nic. I also ahve a dual Xeon PC that I actually use more, don’t ask…I would like to scale too at least four workstations for an upcoming 720/DV mixed cut session and:
I have six new Seagate 300GB SATA drives here and was thinking of throwing them in the G5 and then using a fiber network to access them…
Gigabit nic in PC> gigerouter> and call it good…
I also would like to here the best reason to have another box full of drives with a fiber card in all three boxes and a HP Procurve switch or something with fiber. What server software would you run (linux/Windows/Tiger)?
Am I better off getting a SAN? Can any one justify the price to me- it must be the software right?
Ideally I will have Two machines running X-Factor for AE (that is where my color correction lives)
Two machines editing
Two machines logging and then conforming for DVD (It would be cool to go to HD DVD)
Despreately seeking input, or is through put, oh well.
