Final Cut Pro X: Xsan Best Practices white paper
This document is designed to help you determine the best way of working with a storage area network (SAN), such as Xsan, to speed up creative work and eliminate copying files across networks or hand-carrying hard drives on multi-user projects.
Many post-production facilities, both large and small, need to share media when working with multiple editors, graphic artists, and sound designers. Attaching Final Cut Pro X to central shared storage, also known as a storage area network, can dramatically speed up post-production and enable artists to collaborate better under pressure. Xsan—Apple’s SAN file system—allows multiple computers to access shared storage over a Fibre Channel network.
