One of my customers is using Lightoom (creative cloud subscription) and is saving thier catelog on extrnal hard drives. Thier are two users who need to access this catelog and using the extrernal drives has become cumbersome. They have approx 20TB of images and videos.
They have asked me to provide alternate storage options. I would like to provide them a NAS option and also a cloud storage (google drive, dropbox, etc.) option if thats even possible?
Thanks in advance.
This doesn't work. The Lightroom catalog can be used on network devices.
I assume you mean Lightroom Classic (not Lightroom) since you mentioned sharing a catalog. Lightroom Classic does not support catalogs on NAS or in the cloud.
Thanks for the reply. Are there any expanded storage options to accommodate 20TB?
It is entirely possible that Adobe will be able to give you a price for 20TB of storage. However, this would be for Lightroom (the cloud centric application that stores your photos in the cloud) which does not have a catalog. However, even there I don't think the software known as Lightroom is multi-user software. For clarity, nothing in this paragraph refers to Lightroom Classic.
There are other (non-Adobe) software designed to be multi-user, you might want to search for such a thing.
The LrC catalog must be on a physical hard drive connected to the computer, not a NAS, not A Network Share, not a Network Server, not the Cloud.
The photos and videos (I do not recommend LrC for videos, it is not a video post processor) can be anywhere. They do not need to be on the same physical location as the catalog.
