Soli said:10GigE is a head scratcher, to me. It’s slower than both USB and WiFi, by costa more and is much bulkier, despite GigE being a longstanding standard that faster than both for a very long time.
I’d love for my wired Macs and wired NAS to have a 10GigE connection but I’m not even sure that’s a feasible option for consumer-grade equipment.
Is there a reason for that?
Soli said:NAS have so many features these days, but one feature I haven't seen is a security camera data storage system so that you can buy any number of wireless or wired security cameras that will automatically connect to your NAS' local backup (as well backup to any cloud storage you may have) with whatever looping and notification parameters you've set up. If this already exists I'd love to be pleasantly surprised.
Also, according to the specs on USB 3.1 and 3.1 gen 2 (https://www.everythingusb.com/speed.html) even gen 2 can't touch 10Gb in real wold applications. I have a NAS that I access over 10GbE for video editing and it's faster than every other remote solution except for very expensive external SSD arrays and it has multiple TB of storage. It's my understanding that many video production houses are setup this way so multiple editors can access the same data.
