The Datamation article looks at Xsan, which is, "if used correctly, a , and a compelling product for SMBs, especially those doing multimedia work, or for any company with a multimedia department." Welch says Xsan may not be for everyone: "if you need to have a large amount of clients talking to the SAN front ends, you're going to need to plan your SAN setup carefully. Otherwise, you're going to find that while manageability has gone up, speed has dropped." Luckily, Apple has made Xsan "less painful than it could be, by charging a rather low per-machine price."
