Time to upgrade but need your help

Hi All.

First of all I'd like to say that a very happy unsaid user for the last year. I'm a photographer, videographer and within that last year I maxed out my 26To array and it's now time to upgrade.

 

Check the file attached for my current unraid setup:

 

My daily workstation at the moment is an Imac 5k 2015.

 

Here is what I plan to upgrade:

Workstation:

Change the imac to a maxed out hackintosh I8700K with an SPF+ Ethernet card.

 

Unraid server:

Install an additional Sata controller to add more HD.

Add a 1to SSD as cache drive.

Add 2to ssd drive for all the work in progress

Add a SPF+ Ethernet card.

 

So my question is with that upgrade plan what do you reckon would be the benefits appart from having additional HD space. Do you think I'll be able to easily achieve read/write speed around 1000mb/s and if not what would you suggest?

 

Thank you and looking forward to hearing your input.

Cheers,

You can get 1GB/s or close but only when read/writing to the cache and using a fast NVMe device.

Thanks Johnny for your quick reply! What do you think the read write speed would be with standard ssd? I'd love to be able to create a huge final cut pro library accessing the media from the unraid server.
