My fiancée needs a Mac Pro for movie editing and rendering. I need a web server and a backup solution for my MacBook Pro.
We thought we could split the costs of the Mac Pro and set it up to act as both a web server and a backup device.
Is this a good idea? Specifically:
- Is it easy to set it up to incrementally backup one or several laptops over wifi? And what software would you recommend?
- Is it silent and stable enough to run a web server continuously?
- Will it manage all this, including simultaneous editing?
