Our storage requirements have finally grown enough that it’s no longer feasible to rely on internal drives and direct-attached storage on our notebooks and workstations. Instead, we’ll be testing out a Netgear ReadyNAS Ultra 6 Plus to split up the workload. All archived projects and old media files that don’t get accessed on a daily basis will get offloaded to the ReadyNAS while current projects and Lightroom galleries will continue to live on speedy internal drives. This infrastructure change will require rethinking our backup strategy but, in the long run, should drastically improve things.
