Were a small team of 8 (but growing soon) moving into a new space and Ive been put in charge of upgrading our antiquated server setup. Were all on newer macs running Mavericks, and I was leaning towards this: Mac Mini (hopefully they release a spec update soon) with a Promise Pegasus2 R6 12TB connected via Thunderbolt 1 (or 2 if updated mac mini). My only concern is the connection from the mini to the Ethernet switch, and the bottleneck that can create. I have read about LAG and know the slight performance increase that can create, but still feel like that wont be enough we are a media centric company and it is highly probable for multiple people to be accessing 500MB+ files at once. I havent decided on a switch yet, and likely there will be CAT6a running from the switch to the employees computer, so that shouldnt be the limitation. Im looking for best-case recommendations on the mini to switch connection. Also, if you have any recommendations on a 24 or greater port switch, Id also appreciate those!
