Data offload costs (was Curves and Bit Depth - was Sigma fp)

Data offload costs (was Curves and Bit Depth - was Sigma fp)


 

Interestingly by default if I’m supplying drives I’ll now just supply SSDs (either T5 or Sandisk).  When clients baulk at the cost I just send them the difference in time to offload a card to SSD and to spinning drives - and then the cost of an hours overtime for the crew that would have to wait around.   

Although what usually gets them is that they won’t be able to leave until the data is offloaded.   Once they have seen they can go home quicker with SSDs it’s never usually an issue afterwards.

It’s NOT yet standard for producers to buy a stack of ultra-fast M.2 SSD drives (in triplicate). And that’s what you need for a proper backup strategy with very high data rates.
