We are planning to buy new desktop systems.

Since we work with big files, we love the idea about Fusion drive.


Now my only question. Does this help when you use Network drives.

Since the files are not stored on the system, but on the network, I think its better to have a server with fusion in it?


An other solution might be using a mobile account on the desktop servers.

Since (a copy of) all files is stored on the computer I think the speed will be approved if we use files wit fusion drive.


Hope somebody can give his opinion with should be the best solution.

Now working on the systems is very slow, and often a "turning ball" system is there, when we are accessing files.

    If you are working with big files, why use network homes?


    Fusion drive is great, on new systems or added to older systems...


    Do you have a requirement to use network homes?
