slow editing experience when editing from fully kitted out network infrastructure

Hi everyone, for several reasons I have no choice but to edit from a network server on our local network. Despite the performance increase from having the footage stored locally, with the size of our projects this is just not possible. However I’ve noticed that despite having fully spec'd out servers and network infrastructure e.g 100GP/S networking and fully ssd server arrays, Premiere runs far slower on the media server than having the footage stored locally. From testing, there is no bottlenecks from the desktop to the server, Premiere just doesn’t seem to want to use the full 100gb/s bandwidth, the network drives are faster than the local drive and its mostly one editor at a time accessing the files. Is there any way to force Premiere to perform better over the network, optimise it or prioritise it.


This is a issue that has been plaguing us for years that we have fully kitted out machines but the software just isn’t quite working with me. I could switch to DaVinci yes but its just not that particle for the rest of the team.


appreciate your time effort for reading
