    Re: Storage Hunt: RAIDSTREAM...

    mvegas:

    There is a product review of the Drobo array on Cnet.com.  According to the review.

    "The bad:Drobo itself is an USB-only device

    Cnet usually only reviews a product just before it's release (or soon after) so I find their reviews a bit out of date, they rarely update their reviews after the fact. 

    DataRobotics has since upgraded the original USB-only Drobo to include FW800

    They have also introduced "DroboPro" which adds iSCSI.

    Re: Storage Hunt: Lacie or Drobo

    Hey.. didn't really read the thread, but hopefully you didn't get anything yey. We use MAC and PC, and what I would reccommend would be the QNAP ts-409PRO or the 509 PRO - it is it's own Linux OS, has incredible features in itself, and no problem working / networking with MAC and PC and Linux if needed. It is probably one of the best for function and versatility, and not too pricey either.

     

    I'd check it out on the QNAP website.

     

    TS-409PRO (make sure pro) or 509 pro

     

    Hope that helps. - I wouldn't buy anything else. (and customer service is excellent, I had one firmware issue which was resolved by a phonecall from a service rep working at Qnap - in taiwan, who spoke excellent english and solved it from his end on my CPU - he was even willing to call me if I set a time etc.

     

     

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Tikboy.  Hope you survived the flooding.  The pictures on GMA 7.com were really amazing.

    Awesome!

    No, we have not bought anything yet. I'm checking out Qnap.

    mvegas, yeah it's a big one. we got flooded up to 6 feet. furnitures are all soaked but we're safe now. just drying up. Marikina and Cainta are two of the worst hit cities. some are still submerged.

    Salamat. More power!

    Serleejus,

    I'm wondering how'd you set up your system with Qnap Pro.

    *Did you get the local or NAS systems?

    *if NAS, how did you implement it? As  far as I know, only Avid Unity & EditShare can trully provide a full collaborative environment.

    Thanks.

    Good to hear, I was discussing the flood with another Pinoy the other night and he also mentioned Marikina and Cainta.

    Thanks for sharing the photos

    Re: Storage Hunt: RAIDSTREAM...

    Tikiboy... THe ts-409 Pro has now been replaced with a faster and better one. It is a NAS, gigabit ehternet connection to your router.

     

    here is the link. -

    http://www.qnap.com/pro_detail_feature.asp?p_id=127

     

    it's used as an NAS, and with the option "alldrives" typed in the console, the network drives show as media drives. I am having problems with any imported footage or captured footage at the moment as my other thread

    http://community.avid.com/forums/t/76012.aspx

     

    but it works as a standard media shared drive.

     

    I really looked into all NAS, and found that Qnap - delivers the best and most reasonable product.

     

    I can also get them at wholsale prices (which helps)!! I can do you a favor if you need.

     

    Hope that helps.

    Re: Storage Hunt: RAIDSTREAM...

    Actuelly, TIKBOY - what I would do is get thisone instead.

     

    http://www.qnap.com/pro_detail_feature.asp?p_id=110

     

    the 439PRO - and that's because of the faster READ/WRITE with smb protocol.. about 81MB/sec.

     

    so plenty fast and its also a bit less than the 419pro - the 419 is soho, etc, and the 439 is more corporate - and has a faster CPU, RAM, and therefore the transfer rate.

     

    ** my mistake, the SS-439 is the 2.5" version, and is less than the 419, the TS-439 is faster but more money.. I think the overall would be the 419pro

    Re: Storage Hunt: RAIDSTREAM...

    I appreciate your help Serleejus. We actually tried a NAS solution long me ago but did not really work well (probably the technology is still young).

    *How many editors do you have in your system?

    *Can two or more editors work simultaneously with the same shared NAS?

    *How about project sharing & collaboration?

    *Any speed issues? We also have Gigabit network shared with video, audio. graphics and office use.

    I know I'm expecting a lot from a non Avid-qualified solution.

     

    thanks.

    Re: Storage Hunt: RAIDSTREAM...

    Has anyone used the "Drobo S"? It would at least do firewire 800, and/or esata in addition to the usb 2.0.

    Hello,

    It's been a year since this topic. Are there any other new nonAvid players?

    I found Evo by SNS.

    Re: Storage Hunt: RAIDSTREAM...

    My first recomandation will be for Avid Unity, then you should take a look at facilis terrablock.

    Whatever the customer has :) [view my complete system specs]

    Re: Storage Hunt: RAIDSTREAM...

    Thanks. Actually we did consider Unity. We actually had a proposal from supplier but Avid's solution is just way beyond our budget. I will check out Terrablock.

    We are a small, non-profit organization. At this point, our only hope is a third-party, cheaper solution.

    Sorry, I'm not even sure if I posted this to the proper topic.

    More power!
