I just got another server!

What I like is that they have dual power supplies, and since I have 2 dedicated circuits in my office, I can plug them into each one, so if one goes out, they still keep runn;n.
 
TBs aren't hard to get these days actually. Get a nice LaCY TB external drive and you're set :)

Coot - sounds like you electric bills must be off the charts!
 
That's true. TBs are pretty easy to get. I mean you can get a 250gb harddrive for a couple hundred bucks, and install 4 of them in your PC gives you 1TB.... but I need stability and no down time or loss of data. I'm looking for security and speed rather than as much disk space as I can get... Although, I can say that my servers and drives and controller card cost me less than the Lacie TB.

Energy bill is fine... I don't leave it on all the time. Only when rendering or editing. Never noticed a difference in the energy bill.

It's cool when that thing starts up too... Or when you turn it off... all these SCSI drived wind down...lol
 
What format are you shooting your film in? HD? DV? or what?

I assume you're going to be using uncompressed footage in Post, right?

If you're doing it in DV, then you need less throughput that HD.

I would reccomend a FireWire800 drive. It's the latest technology right now and even if you don't have it on your PC, you can get a firewire card.


I didn't catch that Zen... Damn.. 5 hours for a short! :hmm:

And I thought 40 min of footage for my 5 min short was a lot!!! :weird:
