Anyone using FreeNAS for network project storage?
 
Anyone here using a FreeNAS server for Pro Tools project sharing over a LAN?I'm looking for a shared solution to use with 2-3 PT systems and an Atmos RMU via 10Gb NIC.

I searched the forums, but any posts regarding FreeNAS are a bit too old to be relevant.

I use FreeNAS as backup, archiving, sound library and sharing server, but not as play out device. As far as I know, only Pro Tools play out supported NAS is Avid's own NEXIS server. But I have read in this forum that others have had success in some degree playing out from other NAS. I have NEXIS in other studio and it works great as play out server.

Thanks, I took the plunge and built a 20-core, 128 GB RAM, 64 TB storage server. So far so good.

As for PT playback, any server should work pretty well. Most sessions load into RAM. The big question is writing. I didn’t have any problems with a 5.1 session writing a dozen 5.1 and 2.0 stems.

So far, the only problem is getting the Dolby hardware RMU to write to the FreeNAS server. But that seems to be a permissions issue. So I just need to do more research on how to setup the shares. Currently, I created only Unix share for both the MacOS machines and the windows 10 RMU.
