Setting up a XMac Mini Server for a client to share storage with 6 Mac Pro users through 1G Dedicated Network solution. It allows the clients to edit full HD real time on documentary projects. The Server is connecting to a Areca ARC-8050 Thunderbolt 32TB enterprise Storage. Through the XMacMini Server we are able to connect a SmallTree 6 ports 1G card which allow us to connect to 6 users directly. The mac mini server is also acting as an ingest system.
Late last year, the client has added the second unit of Areca ARC-8050T2 -32TB enterprise storage.the system allows you to expand and scale your storage gradually. It also allows you to increase your work force from 6 to 12 users.
The central storage system will help a growing team to reduce multiple copies of working files, solving backup and archive issues.
