I recently did an online presentation on my Archiware P5 backups and archive workflows for media professionals.
This presentation goes into some detail of what two different storage setups look like and what similarities exist in my Xsan (fibre channel) and Jellyfish (10GbE) backup and archive workflows.
Despite the storage differences, the common workflow is that they all use the P5 Archive App to allow the Final Cut Pro X editors to archive completed projects. The simple way to do this is by right-clicking in the Finder and they will go to tape and get replaced by stub files (small files with the same name and negligible file size). When the project or any of the footage or assets needs to be restored it is another right click to restore. No IT people need to be involved. It’s magic. Almost.
