Over at MacPerformanceGuide.com are three posts worth reading for photographers for various reasons:

Performance across drive capacity of four Seagate 12.0TB Enterprise Capacity 3.5-inch HDD (Helium)
Seagate 12TB Helium

High-capacity storage and proper data hygiene (separation of OS and apss from data) are necessities for anyone who values their work. Ditto for backup protocol.

Regarding the 12TB drives, this weekend they are on sale for about $450 after instant rebates (limit 4). They are also used in the products below.

For Thunderbolt 3 users looking for a 4 bay enclosure, I’d recommend holding off just a bit longer, as there will be a Thunderbolt 3 version of the OWC Thunderbay 4 soon. I have five (5) Thunderbay units—love 'em. For the 4-bay units, I recommend getting the pre-tested and burned in RAID edition, which includes SoftRAID, as of this year the ONLY acceptable solution for RAID on Macs.
