I manage 16 Macs that range between G4 1GHz emacs to the latest iMacs. They're used primarily for video editing, sometimes more than half of them will be in operation at once. The Macs are currently not networked. My problem is backups and student work. The macs are currently backed up manually using an external HDD going from Mac to Mac, which is very labor-intensive. I'm looking at maybe setting up a server that will allow individual login accounts for each student to store their work to, which will remove the need for manual backups. Is it possible to go a 'cheap route' for this, taking into account it is video work? When I say cheap, I mean we can't afford a Mac server. What we do have is a 1.83GHz Intel Core duo iMac with 2GB of RAM and a cracked screen. Is that of any use? What else would we need? One concern I have is what network connections we'd need to support (relatively light) video work.
