    i think its time for me to look at hard drive arrays for my aperture library
    currently im using a 4tb thunderbolt drive configured in RAID 1
    when i open the library in aperture its getting painfully slow on my macbook pro so im looking at ways to speed it up as well as having easily expandable storage space.
    im looking at the pegasas 4,the drobo 5b as well as others.
    i want at least 4tb of space.
    something faster than what i have now (probably raid 5 or 10 since i want some fault tolerance)

    currently im running aperture on a 17" macbook pro
    2.2 ghz i7
    16gb of ram
