Tiered video storage with EVO Nearline

Nearline servers are the perfect intermediary between your online media server and an offline backup or archival system. This secondary tier of storage allows video production teams to free up capacity in their online media server while maintaining quickly accessible, on-site backups of their media and projects on the nearline system.

Purpose-built for creative media production, EVO Nearline servers come with all of EVO’s workflow tools included. Pair your primary video production server with an EVO Nearline system for a fast, reliable, and cost-effective tiered storage workflow.

Scale-out storage
EVO Nearline servers accommodate up to 960TB per node with expansion units.

For a high availability (HA) scale-out storage infrastructure, EVO Nearline can be configured in a variety of clustered modes to accommodate multiple petabytes in a single namespace.

I never have to worry about the one thing that keeps things running smoothly—how we’re storing and accessing our files.

Cloud archive with EVO shared storage

Backing up your media to cloud storage can provide an easily accessible tier of off-site media redundancy. If archiving media to the cloud is part of your video department’s workflow, EVO includes built-in tools to automate your team’s recurring cloud archive and backup tasks.

Slingshot, EVO’s included automations engine, lets you schedule recurring backup and replication jobs from your EVO server to cloud storage. Set your backup schedule once and enjoy a low-maintenance cloud archive solution that works effortlessly with your EVO video editing server.

LTO and LTFS archive

EVO is purpose-built for professional content creators, which means that it is built to work with the technology that media production teams use in their workflow. That includes LTO and LTFS tape archival solutions. EVO is compatible with LTFS and LTO tape archive technology to allow freedom and flexibility in your archival workflow.

For a truly seamless experience, EVO integrates with StorageDNA media archiving solutions. This integration with StorageDNA allows users to see the status of archived footage, archive media files, search, preview, and restore video from the archive all without leaving EVO’s included ShareBrowser media asset manager.

The ShareBrowser integration with StorageDNA works great. Our old footage is easily searchable in ShareBrowser. We preview the proxy files, find the exact clip we need, restore it, and bring it into our projects without hassle.
