I am able to reliably play back 2K 10bit log DPX files from XRAID. I was able to get 380 MB/sec sustained on a fully populated, 7TB chassis striped on both channels and configured as a JBOD, using two 2Gbit channels of fiber on a switch. This is with both Windows XP (DVS DDR) and da Vinci Resolve (Linux) as SAN clients with ADIC StoreNext. You may need to tweak your config settings on the XRAID, and the ADIC filesystem adds to the performance over simply running NTFS.

Now add another XRAID to the switch, and I can render (play & record) in real time.
