Stream counts above were conducted using a 2018 EVO 16 Bay model with 16 x 12TB HDD disks and EVO OS v.6.1 on macOS and Windows workstations connected over Gigabit and 10Gb Ethernet using AFP and SMB protocols. Tests use many simultaneous unique clips (independent files) of various sizes, with Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer, and other professional video editing software.

What people are saying

Some of the companies that use EVO Shared Storage

We have better processes in place because of EVO. It’s allowed us to sleep… without it, it would always be crunch time.

Andy Fink, MasterClass — Lead Video Editor
The amount of efficiency this gives us is just unreal.

Mauricio Tinoco, Church by the Glades — Film Team Director
All of our raw footage, projects, graphics, and finished shows are safe and available from any machine. We’re sometimes delivering over 100 videos a week, so having EVO has been absolutely essential to our workflow.

Golnaz Alibeigi, Microsoft — Channel 9 Studio Manager
We were using a 64TB direct-attached RAID, and it got to a point where we knew we just couldn’t get anything done without a centralized server that we could rely on to handle our workflow without hiccups.

Gevorg Karensky, Bipolar Studio — Founder
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 20 users reviewing and editing footage on EVO at any given time.

Jose Berrios, Park Slope Productions — Post Supervisor
