I run a photography studio with 3 Mac Computers and 3 users all having to access RAW photos at the same time. Currently, all RAWs are on one Mac Pro and shared over a gigabit network.
The problem is that Gigabit is too slow, and I can't figure out an elegant solutions that is faster?
I know thunderbolt is fast, but Thunderbolt drives can only be accessed by one computer at a time.
My only idea that I have not been able to try yet is to daisy chain Thunderbolt Cables together to make a Thunderbolt Bridge network between all the macs, and then plug one computer to an external Thunderbolt enclosure, mount the drive on 1 computer and then try and share the drive to the rest of the network. I don't know if it's even going to work, and it would be an expensive experiment!
What do other people use when they need faster than gigabit ethernet networks?
How do other studios set up their network to be fast, reliable and backed up?
