Q

Best bets for video and data storage

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.
