I am planning a network for a small company with about 10 employees, all using Macs. They will be sharing some files. Not a lot. Currently they have a Mac Server X and want to use a Mac mini as a server. They are also using StorageDNA for the old footage. There are two video editing machines that are a part of the group.
I would like to come up with a better solution for this company. I do not have experience with this sort of business. I am thinking of a Linux Ubuntu Server box with raid that will allow me to backup data to. They are using external drives on each machine with thunderbolt and time machine (though maybe this solution is ok?). Overall they want to keep things as simple as possible. There is not a lot of sharing going on though the company is growing and I want to make things future proof.
What sort of set up is recommended for a small company like this with not a lot of demands.?Though they do have video editing machines and storage currently is time consuming. They have an LTO LTFS storage/ backup solution at the moment using storageDNA. They have about 20 Terrabytes at the moment of footage that is stored with the storageDNA solution. This system is over 5 years old.
Im looking for how others would approach this scenario. Thanks for the advise!
