Intense performance

Our customers love to push the envelope, so EVO supports even the most demanding 4K and 8K video projects. The EVO OS is tuned to finesse the most possible video performance from every single disk, which means you can do more with less.

We do this the hard, meticulous way.

Testing was conducted using a single 16 bay EVO Q2 2018 series model, loaded with 16 x 12TB HDD disks, running EVO OS v.6.1. We connect more than ten Mac and HP workstations, direct-attached with GbE and 10GbE, using SMB, FCPX, Final Cut Pro 7, Media Composer, Premiere Pro, and loop and scrub simultaneous unique clips (independent files) of various sizes. Stream counts shown represent aggregate load on the storage system and do not apply to Nearline, Cluster, or Prodigy models.

The table above uses 16 disks. If, for example, you were to add another 16 disks to your EVO then you would roughly double the number of streams.
The table above uses 16 disks. If, for example, you were to use half that number then your EVO could handle slightly more than half the number of streams shown.

SSD Launch mode

For most creative departments, the video stream performance above is already more than enough room to grow.

But some projects—like color grading and finishing—can go far beyond what’s required for editorial. 4K DPX/EXR image sequences, for example, can require about 2,000 megabytes per second to the color grading suite, which can crush shared storage systems costing 2-3x more. Order perfectly matched SSDs with your EVO and it ships to you prepared to take on the world.

“All we have to do is put our energy towards creating things as a team. EVO is this invisible force that keeps us all connected every minute, every day.”

Fast and scalable

EVO and its custom EVO OS are built exclusively for the performance and workflow demands of professional TV, film, graphics, VFX, animation, AR/VR, audio, and broadcast. The system is an incredibly fast NAS+SAN video workflow storage server… and it’s easily expandable. A 16 bay EVO can scale up to about a petabyte.

Video storage compared

EVO performance is rated with disks filled to near capacity. That’s important, because it’s easy to get higher numbers on new, barely used disks. A rating at nearly full shows what you can expect from an EVO after extensive use, not just what you’ll get when it’s fresh out of the box.

“We grew the number of episodes during production and the staff kept growing. We had a show runner, nine producers, two executive producers, seven editors and four assistant editors — around 24 Final Cut Pro users reviewing and editing footage on EVO at any given time.”

“EVO worked perfectly right out of the box. I was surprised how well it integrated into our process, particularly with Avid Media Composer. If you didn’t know any better you would think you were working on Avid’s native storage.”

EVO combines a high-performance, purpose-built storage array with the most extensive connectivity options available for digital video shared storage.


 

Compatibility

Video formats — Uncompressed, Animation, 8K, DPX, ProRes, DNxHD, RED/R3D, DVCProHD, XDCAM, DV, HDV — have very different performance needs, especially in a shared storage workflow environment. We test and optimize for peak performance with the leading codecs and applications, assuring compatibility with your needs.

Sharing

Stop wasting time copying huge files! EVO enables each user to capture, edit, share, and play in real-time — all on central storage — while providing fast access to shared media and other assets from every suite.

Connectivity

EVO is both SAN and NAS, which isn’t something you’ll find in most storage systems. This means you’ll have ultimate flexibility and storage consolidation for your digital video post production workflow.
