so the office I'm working in is looking to replace our front end storage. We are a digital photo studio, so no video editing, but we still need shared storage. Currently due to our workflow this storage space is 3TB. I'm working on seeing what we can do to minimize this requirement because I'd really like to deploy some SSDs to speed it up. Right now we are running off of a pegasus r6 thunderbolt setup with a mac mini. It's shared over a gigabit network and we get some moderate speeds off of it. It's not the throughput that's an issue as much as the delay while browsing the filesystem tree (loading thumbnails, subdirs, etc). So my theory is that we can utilize some SSDs in order to minimize this delay. Objectively we aren't going to get any other benefit from a SSD on a gigabit network. I'm just wondering if anyone has any advice - maybe I've missed something? I've been thinking about this for quite a while and it can get quite tricky at times. So should I look at software raid0'ing some PCI (or regular) SSDs? Is there a product out there that does most of this headache? Otherwise we are probably just going to deal with the delay for now and continue with a pegasus r4. It's pretty cheap!
