EVO is designed and built for digital artists who use applications like Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, Adobe CC/Premiere Pro and Pro Tools. These apps can have extraordinary I/O requirements, so EVO is tuned to give them exactly what they want, right out of the box. In the unlikely event you need more precise tuning, you can create your own “I/O Profiles” and assign one to any volume on-the-fly.
Advanced caching algorithms help to make EVO capable of handling more video streams per array than most shared storage systems. This means you can do more work with a fewer number of disks, which results in a less expensive, more reliable, energy conscious storage solution.
A popular method of increasing transfer speed is to use more than one data pipe per computer. EVO offers several ways to take multiple physical connections — Fibre Channel or Ethernet paths — and combine them homogeneously for higher SAN throughput.
Preset for Video Apps
EVO is configured with its defaults preset for use with professional video editing applications. These presets will give excellent performance with other applications too, but if you’re primarily using applications like Pro Tools or Logic Pro with very high track counts, simply change EVO’s I/O profile from Video to Audio for maximum performance.
