SR Posted July 23, 2018 Share Posted July 23, 2018 So I finally understood what RAID was thanks to this stupidly easy-to-understand video. My photography work (my current line) has gotten to a point where each projects (raw, PSDs) easily reaches 100GB to 500GB. Most of my video projects till now have done using the NX1 and GH5. And I am working on a few short scripts that I'll be shooting with the preordered BMPCC4K (first time working on raw or prores). With those in mind, I was trying to figure out a way to move and work on data effortlessly. So this video was tremendously helpful in understanding RAID, which has always intimidated me, perhaps because the information I found till date were so fragmented. I was thinking of getting the Synology 8 bay NAS DiskStation DS1817+ (Quad-core 8-bay NAS with AES-NI support, with over 1,179 MB/s reading and 542 MB/s writing performance), but I'm not sure what speed I'd need to handle 4k and prores. Also, I was curious on what RAID solutions each of you are using and how the experience has been. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
