    I'm working on a few projects. I usually work on smaller projects (less than 5 minutes) but one of the projects for a client is about 60 minutes. Managing all the data has always been a bit of a struggle for me even on the smaller projects. What sort of editing storage solutions are you guys using for editing red raw footage? I have an i7 6950X, 128 gb of ram, and gtx 1080 ti windows 10 based workstation. I'm looking to invest in something that's reliable, fast, and has enough storage for a 60 minute project. I'm shooting with a red epic dragon at 6k widescreen 6:1 compression. Thanks :)

    What budget do you have? This is the sort of thing that could have an answer of $1000, $2000, $5000, or $10,000 (or more).

    I have worked on 60-minute projects where they had a 100:1 shooting ratio, so you could easily wind up with 100 hours of material. That could be at least 80TB of data (plus backups and so on).

    An idea of the overall amount of media would help as well as slot configuration available on your system.
