Ready for Anything

EVO’s video-centric hardware architecture and operating system are precisely tuned to give you and your team the power to edit 4K, 8K, VR, and everything in-between, directly from the server.

Choosing shared storage should be easier. We’ve spent the last 20 years pushing shared storage systems to the breaking point, so you don’t have to.

For more demanding workflows, like 16-bit 4K DPX/EXR, EVO is available in all-SSD configurations with up to 50 Gigabit Ethernet.

Tests 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 are done with many simultaneous unique clips (independent files) of various sizes, with Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer, and other professional video software. These numbers represent what you get from your EVO system after extensive use, not fresh out of the box.

Using EVO Shared Storage with Adobe Premiere team projects

A Shared Media Location for Team Projects

EVO makes Adobe Team Projects workflows easy. Once your media is imported from EVO, other users will be able to access the media inside the team project instantly without relinking media.

Not using team projects? You can still securely share projects using EVO’s advanced project locking feature—which enables teams to share Premiere, After Effects, and other project files without overwriting each other.

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 EVO gives us is just unreal.
Mauricio Tinoco, Church by the Glades — Film Team Director
All of our raw footage, Premiere 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 — 20+ users reviewing and editing footage on EVO at any given time.
Jose Berrios, Park Slope Productions — Post Supervisor
