EVO is shared storage for media creators.
Fast and scalable, with built-in media management
High-performance video editing shared storage—a liberating experience for your team.
The EVO OS is tuned to finesse the most possible video performance from every single disk, which means you can do more with less.

Testing was conducted using a single 16 bay EVO, 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.
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 video workflow storage server… and it’s easily expandable.
SSD launch mode
For most teams, the video stream performance shown above is more than enough headroom.
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 a color grading suite, which can crush 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.”
Gevorg KarenskyFounder, Bipolar Studio

“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.”
Jose BerriosPark Slope Productions
“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.”
