The university I work for is renovating our digital media lab and we are looking at implementing some sort of NAS for students working in Final Cut Studio. This will be used for class projects so after each semester the NAS will be erased for the next wave of students. In the past we relied on external hard drives however that was clumsy and there were cases of data loss. We are looking at some devices from drobo, netgear, etc instead of more enterprise level devices.
Has anyone had any experience with a situation like this and have any recommendations? We are not sure where to start looking and was wondering if there were any major performance issues with Final Cut. There will be about 15 computers in the lab that will use the nas.
