    As I have been planning for when my Epic-X arrive (Which I am EAGERLY anticipating BTW) I have found myself running the numbers for the storage, and run times for the RedMags over and over. So instead of doing the same thing over again, I put together these charts for reference and I thought that others might benefit from them as well. From what I have read so far, with the Epic-M's the run times for the 128GB RedMag have been close to what has been published, so extrapolating those numbers out, I arrived at these numbers.

    Caveat Emptor: All things with Red are subject to change. These charts are meant for general help in planning for the Epic.

    Enjoy! :)

    Oh, and here is a PDF of the same:

    Thanks for the info Ryan. It's makes me wonder which compression rate would work best for me.

    Very cool of you Ryan, thank you for the numbers.

    Now we need the same in terms of file size, if you feel like having a bit more Excel fun today. :)

    Awesome, Ryan. Thanks.

    It's very worthy of a sticky.

    Thanks again Ryan! Off of those numbers I am getting 31.7hs of HDRx 5k WS 5:1, and 63.4hs of non-HDRx 5k WS 5:1 footage in one 16-bay 1.5GB RAID with two drives "lost" in to parity in a RAID-6 setup, and calculating the space actually available due to formatting at 80%. Can someone more familiar with RAID setups corroborate?

    I think 7:1 is going to be the best compression rate.
