Do you have an opinion on who makes the best SAN for video and data storage? We are probably looking at 50TB for video and 1TB for data.
SGI may be a good resource for you, as they specialize in that area. They resell crossbar switch based storage that's good for that type of application. For video applications, use a SAN with 2Gbit interfaces. The extra bandwidth will help you.
