Which storage drives are best for video editing?

Mike over at ProMAX here. So I'm looking for drives for my server.

So things to consider would be size, performance and you know specs of course.

So when I look online I generally go to Amazon, B&H, anywhere that's online retailer most local places won't have large-scale drives for Enterprise level.

However, you might have like a Micro Center or something around but we're going to take a look here.

These are some drives that I have. In stock here. These are a little bit older generation Iron Wolfs, four terabytes, but these are pretty bulky pretty heavy.

Most standards are like 10 terabytes all the way up to like 16 terabyte drives now that you can carry and load up on a server to build like, you know, 90 terabyte servers and up. Nowadays SSDs, these are a thing so much lighter lot smaller like a little bit more on the expensive side, but this is pretty much the way to go.

If you want the speed you want the performance like everything in general and not have to worry about failures on what actual spinning moving parts inside a disk like SSDs they’re the way to go.
