Best Adobe storage NAS for Content Creator

Secure

Big Enough for your Final Cut Pro Library

Apple’s MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops are lightweight, very portable laptops while offering high performance for content creators, however, this does not come without limits. The storage configuration, while fast, is soldered onto the motherboard and is limited to the options Apple provides you at checkout, making upgrades nearly impossible. While this makes the internal storage possibly suitable for occasional creation of content, professional content creators may find the maximum of 8 TB of storage insufficient for long-term work. Video resolutions are higher than ever and many content creators use 8K footage in their workflow, causing creators to look for solutions to archive and keep footage in alternative storage solutions.

At the time of writing, the new M1 Macs, both desktop Macs and MacBooks cannot be upgraded. With Apple slowly taking away the ability to replace components, it is imperative that storage needs are considered. A professional content creator may require more than what the MacBook or iMac offer. With ever-increasing storage requirements from content creators, an ASUSTOR NAS often exceeds the expectation of content creators. Most current models of ASUSTOR NAS devices offer faster-than-Gigabit speeds, ensuring an ASUSTOR NAS not only brings the capacity you need, but makes the experience seamless. ASUSTOR NAS devices support collaboration in addition to the advantages of high-capacity storage space to make teamwork efficient and seamless. Even if you replace your Mac, an ASUSTOR NAS ensures you can pick up where you and your teammates left off.

Your ASUSTOR Brings Virtually Unlimited Potential to Final Cut Pro

Archiving and unfinished raw content are among the most common storage problems content creators encounter when working on a Mac. Final Cut Pro Libraries can grow rapidly and out of control. Content creators often turn to USB external drives to store material for Final Cut Pro. When using a Mac, especially portable Macs like the MacBook Pro, external drives are often connected and disconnected, which can lead to wear and tear of the port. External drives are also inconvenient as the files cannot be conveniently shared with coworkers or collaborators and external drives are susceptible to damage in ways a NAS is not. A NAS remains stationary while digitally making your files available to you while an external drive is portable, increasing the risk of drops, spills or other types of damage.

Enabling Efficient Workflows with 2.5-Gigabit Ethernet and Faster

Use an ASUSTOR NAS to create the best hybrid cloud device for your projects. With support for SMB, AFP, NFS and Time Machine, an ASUSTOR NAS is the best data backup solution for Macs. ASUSTOR NAS devices largely have abandoned Gigabit Ethernet and instead utilize 2.5-Gigabit Ethernet and/or 10-Gigabit Ethernet to seamlessly add storage to what otherwise are non-upgradeable computers. Ensure that you’ll never have to delete an archived project again with the extreme capacity an ASUSTOR makes available for content creation. ASUSTOR NAS devices support editing and archiving of content made by Final Cut Pro, DaVinci and Adobe Premiere. Need even more space? Connect multiple expansion units and take advantage of ASUSTOR’s live-upgrade capabilities to ensure you never run out of space.

With high amounts of capacity and speed, there is virtually no delay or lag when editing, encoding and exporting videos on an ASUSTOR NAS while share links can be provided immediately to customers for approval, saving both time and money.

An ASUSTOR NAS provides a variety of methods that protect and back up data both locally and remotely while also making it easy to share data that include, but are not limited to local backups, backups to other ASUSTOR NAS devices, remote synchronizations with ASUSTOR EZ Sync and cloud backups with Datasync Center.

Protected with RAID

RAID is supported by ASUSTOR NAS devices. Install at least two hard drives to add protection from drive failure. A RAID array can protect data from hard drive failure while in some cases, increase drive performance. Your ASUSTOR NAS will remind you when one of your hard drives fails. Simply replace the malfunctioning hard drive with a new one to rebuild the array with all of your data intact.
