Now that the reality of the X5R storage requirements has started to sink in, direct attached storage or network attached storage expansion seems more critical than ever to nail down. I'm looking at a few possible solutions for >60TB editable-speed storage including - the Qnap 8-bay with Thunderbolt 2. Expandable to 400TB+ with additional 8-bay enclosures. A bit pricey though. Main unit is $5200 with 6TB X 8 disks. 8-bay expansion chassis is $700 which is reasonable. - the LaCie 12Big Thunderbolt 3 to 72TB (announced at NAB 2016 but pricing not yet announced) - DIY assembly of RAID 12-bay DAS/NAS chassis (about $1500) + 12 X 6TB drives (about $2200). - Other? Thoughts, current solutions, recommendations, WTF comments etc welcome here.
