Network switch


#1

Hello hardware folks.
Thanks for reading my post. I’m wondering if anyone would be kind enough to recommend a hardware switch that can provide fast access to central storage (NAS) for 12 workstations dealing mostly with cgi/vfx projects with occasional video editing needs? Any first hand experience on a solid reliable switch says not too techy for artists to set up? Thanks again for your time.

Cheers!

Depending on your budget, I’d say a Netgear 10gb switch would be the most cost effective option and with only 12 clients you can opt for the 16 port one which is only $1299 on Amazon.

Thanks for your recommendation vfxtech. I’ll take a look at the product. Cheers!
