  • RAID, Thunderbolt to Ethernet and editing


    I have a seriously techie question.

    I work in a school in India and we get really humid during monsoon season. Think like living in a cloud moisture.

    Our new Pegasus RAID is a concern of mind. Currently it sits in-between two iMacs connectives via thunderbolt.

    The IT guy says we can move it to the server room as its dry there.

    At the very least we need to go and use a Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter, which concerns me with bottlenecks.

    He is installing 10 Gb switches near by, so he thinks it won't be a problem, but I am not entirely sure.

    What are we overlooking? Will the students need to "Connect to Server"? Or will it come up as an external drive?

    What do we need to do to make sure speed wise we can still use the RAID for editing, not just storage.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advanced.
