SNS Ships New Evo (Fibre Channel, 10Gb iSCSI and NAS) Shared Storage System

Latest Advancement in Shared Storage for Post-Production Workgroups Offers Fibre Channel, 10Gb iSCSI SAN and NAS in One Box

St. Louis, Missouri, June 5, 2008 – Studio Network Solutions (SNS), a premier provider of post-production storage systems, today announced that its recently introduced shared storage system, Evo, is now shipping with additional new features.

The new Evo offers file sharing, volume sharing, Fibre Channel, iSCSI, NAS, and up to 24 Terabytes per system. Each unit now also includes Postmap, a powerful metadata management application that lets users tag and quickly locate files on the storage system.

Evo’s integration of SAN and NAS enables everyone in a workgroup to edit, share and review projects, media and other large files using the most appropriate connection type for the assigned task. The Evo shared storage system is compatible with Final Cut Pro, Avid, Adobe Premiere Pro, Pro Tools, and most similar applications for Mac and PC.

“Customers who choose Evo will have the latest in advanced shared storage systems, providing an array of advantages over the usual SAN-only or NAS-only products,” comments Eric Newbauer, Vice President of Studio Network Solutions. “The out-of-box performance alone is remarkable, but having everything tightly integrated into one easily expandable product makes Evo the perfect storage solution for many video and sound editing professionals.”

Evo easily expands to accommodate more storage capacity, additional users and increased performance. It offers Fibre Channel and Ethernet ports for direct connection of up to ten computers – without a switch. A 10Gb Ethernet option is also available for users who require the absolute maximum bandwidth.

Evo is incredibly versatile, and among its list of advanced features it even offers the ability to bridge existing Fibre Channel storage over iSCSI or NAS. Bridging offers customers the capability to re-purpose their older storage, such as an Xserve RAID, and extend it over long distances with Ethernet.

Evo is available from SNS resellers worldwide. For more information, please contact SNS or visit
