Xtarget – Transform your Mac into a powerful, incredibly fast SAN storage server.

mac-pro-iscsi-server

Xtarget enables you to inexpensively transform your Mac into an iSCSI SAN storage server. Just connect your Thunderbolt, USB, and FireWire DAS (Direct Attach Storage) devices to a Mac with Xtarget installed, then present the storage over Ethernet as iSCSI devices, which can then be shared using Xsan or SANmp.

The benefit of Xtarget is that it enables you to quickly create a SAN using components you already own, thus saving time and money yet still getting the performance and workflow benefits of a typical SAN.

Office. Field. Home. Backpack!

Xtarget can present just about any local storage over iSCSI, but in fact, Xtarget is proving to have use cases above and beyond what would be considered for a traditional SAN. With Xtarget, a Mac Mini, and a few pounds of hardware, you can have a multi-user SAN that travels with you to the field, hotel, and other on-location work.

You can even present your Xtarget disks to the cloud for remote users.


With Xtarget and iSANmp, we turned our Mac Mini and Promise Thunderbolt array into a production SAN for our FCP X suites. The improvement to our workflow has been massively enhanced. We’re very pleased with the balance of price, quality, and most of all: the exceptional level of service we’ve experienced. Many thanks to the SNS team for going the extra mile!

Ignition Productions Uses EVO for On-Location Coverage with Red Bull TV

Ignition Productions was awarded the contract to cover the 2017 Dakar Rally for Red Bull TV—a daily behind-the-scenes show of the world's toughest Motorsport event. They had to shoot over 13 days of competition across three countries, in some of the harshest conditions imaginable, with temperatures ranging from 122°F to near freezing, sometimes in altitudes over 3500m, an extreme feat for even the most adventurous crews.

Texas Christian University Drafts EVO For A New Sports Video Team

After months of research and evaluating products, TCU decided on the EVO 16 Bay Shared Storage Server. “EVO and its ShareBrowser software allows us to log our footage and add metadata, and it’s all searchable,” says Salters. Each EVO system includes unlimited licenses of ShareBrowser, an intuitive asset management software that lets search, tag, index, and preview media across all of their storage — something that was vital for the TCU team.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Production Company Turns to EVO for High-Speed Post Workflow

Launched in 2004, Hammerhead’s initial purpose was to give Dale Earnhardt Jr., NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver every year since 2003, more creative control over his personal brand. But just as Junior doesn’t just “race cars,” Hammerhead Entertainment doesn’t just “film endorsements.” The studio is creating branded content for a variety of clients — from the National Guard to Nickelodeon and PepsiCo to Penske.
