Hi The market leader in Scale out NAS is Dell EMC Isilon, we have many customer running Media workflows from SD to Uncompressed UHD streams.

MAC users tend to use SMB as their preffered protocol stack, with some of the following tweaks for performance (SMB signing).

I can say Qumulo is pretty plug and play, very easy to use Web UI, and probably affordable. ( and finally fast enough on mac ) .
There is also Rozo, pretty fast, maybe a bit cheaper than Q , worth a test, did i say it's fast on mac over smb? like Really fast ?

@julian firminger thanks for the response.

Isilon actually have multiple node types the X210 offering starts at 30TB for a 3 node solution, take a look at the express bundle this is priced for small start-ups.

@ Borja, Dan means Monty's reply not your questions. ;)@ Monty, your remarks are against the list rules and beyond inappropriate, had you read the question Borja is looking for something around 80TB, low cost. That's not an Isilon.
Borja,
Having said that, you might look at IsilonSD Edge. It's sofware only Isilon that runs on a VMware host. I think the max is around 80TB under license.You could also look at:QumuloGPFSStornextBut these are all quite expensive solutions for something quite small. GPFS also comes with a lot of technical knowledge requirement. (It rocks, but it's the antithesis of plug and play...)
It sounds like you might be better off looking at something like DDP or one of the more post-centric solutions if you dont have plans to scale up much. We have multiple DDP units out in OB trucks and the like and we're real pleased with them. I'd put them above the rest of that segment (EditShare, Terablock, et al).
