I have been fascinated by data flows especially for photographers. Chase Jarvis is a well renowned photographer (who happens to be based here in Seattle). Chase’s video and blog post provide a very detailed explanation of how his files (photographs and video) go from the field (on location), back to his studio, and then finally to the client. He has some impressive hardware and workflows. Remember backups are key! RAID1 is NOT a backup, just a copy.
Please head over to his blog for a much more in depth explanation.
