The EVO 48TB 16-Bay Shared Media Storage Server (8 x 6TB) from Studio Network Solutions is a RAID-protected NAS + SAN server that functions as a shared storage solution for multimedia production. This system is developed and tuned for the workflow needs of TV, film, video, graphics, VFX, animation, audio, and broadcast production environments. It provides project, bin, and file sharing, Ethernet ports to directly connect computers in a workgroup, high throughput for video workloads up to 6K resolution, and more.
This EVO is a 16-bay system with a 3RU form factor. It has a raw capacity of 48TB, comprised of 8 x 6TB drives and is powered by 64-bit multi-core processors. Network connectivity is achieved using four Gigabit Ethernet ports and RAID 0, 1, 4, 5, 6, and 10 are supported, each of which provides performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. Included are unlimited SANmp admin/client licenses for Windows & Mac, unlimited licenses of the ShareBrowser Desktop Client, the globalSAN iSCSI Initiator for Mac OS X, and a 1,300W redundant power supply, made up of three 650W modules. By using up to four optional expansion chassis, this system can support up to 80 drives.
EVO's integration of Fibre Channel and Ethernet enables Mac/PC workstations and laptops to connect to the RAID-protected system and share high performance storage for use with Final Cut Pro, Avid, Adobe Premiere Pro, Pro Tools, and other professional applications. This EVO operates using 100-240 VAC at 47-63 Hz (auto switching). It is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris, and virtually any operating system that supports iSCSI, Fibre Channel, NFS, SFTP, and AFP.

Project and Bin Sharing
An EVO unlocks the sharing capabilities of Media Composer - with several editors in the same Avid project, teams can collaborate by using shared bins, exchanging access to media and sequences directly within Media Composer
File and Volume Sharing
An EVO allows you to use file sharing, volume sharing, or a combination of the two, providing multi-user write workspaces for sharing projects and bins, in addition to high performance SAN volumes for multi-cam and uncompressed workflows
ShareBrowser Desktop Client
The ShareBrowser Desktop Client not only helps improve visibility and access to your team's storage systems, it also helps enables automatic project locking for FCP, Premiere Pro, and Pro Tools, as well as Avid project and bin sharing. It allows you to search across all the EVO storage as well as local, offline, and other network disks. Assets and custom metadata can be instantly added to the shared database, and users can more easily find, preview, and share media assets and projects. And now, cloud services can appear as workspaces just like your other network storage. ShareBrowser even gives you the capability to securely ingest and migrate data using built-in verification tools
