Mac Mini Intel as Node for Logic AND network Storage

We have too room in our Audio Post Facility, Both rooms with PTHD and one room ALSO uses Logic Pro.

My Idea is to set up a Mac Mini Intel an hook it to the Other 2 (a G5 Powermac and a G4 dual), via a Gigabit, then, with some FW drives, use it as a Shared Network Storage system (with Raid1 capabilities) and also using the MacMini as a LOGIC Node.

Typical Post project is 4 to 10 tracks so no big deal, and the Logic projects need some extra power every now and then....


Any opinion about this setup???

Thanks

I've run nodes back the other way, from an intel mac as the primary to a G5 as the node, and it's great, but I don't know how well it works the direction your'e looking for (PPC primary, mactel as node).

The node function in Logic is kind of a hassle. It would be great if the system had a smart manager for moving tasks to the other computer.
