Studio Network Solutions 16B96TB-2X10S overview

  • 1Description

The 16B96TB-2X10S EVO Shared Storage 16-Bay Base Media Server from Studio Network Solutions is a RAID-protected SAN and NAS shared media storage server with 96TB RAID storage preinstalled. It is designed for video and audio editing and other DCC (digital content creation) applications with high-bandwidth demands where multiple users need access to the same content at once. EVO includes in-the-box support for features like project sharing and bin sharing. Storage can be configured in RAID 0, 1, 4, 5, 6, or 10.

The 16B96TB-2X10S is equipped with two ports of 1Gb Ethernet and two ports of 10 Gigabit optical connectivity. Plus, the EVO's connectivity interface can be expanded to include up to 26 GbE ports and up to twelve 10 GbE optical ports. Separately available expansion hardware allows you to upgrade to faster network interfaces. EVO supports iSCSI and can be a SAN, a NAS, or both at the same time. It is purpose-built for digital media workflows and demanding use with leading professional applications such as Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro / FCP X, Adobe Premiere Pro/CC, and DaVinci Resolve.

Workflow Tools

Project and Bin Sharing
Use the native Project and Bin sharing functions of Avid, and take advantage of project sharing for FCPX and Adobe Premiere Pro. EVO also unlocks the sharing capabilities of Media Composer—with several editors working on the same Avid project, teams can easily collaborate by using shared Bins, exchanging access to Media and Sequences directly within Media Composer.
File and Volume Sharing
EVO enables 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.
Slingshot Automations GUI and API
With Slingshot, you can create and run automated file workflows that span EVO, other storage systems, and Amazon S3/Glacier cloud services. Slingshot helps boost productivity by enabling you to automate repetitive file management tasks.
ShareBrowser Desktop Client
ShareBrowser is a unified file-, project-, and asset-management interface for Mac OS X and Windows. It improves visibility of your team's storage systems and access to them, and enables automatic project locking for FCP, Premiere Pro, and Pro Tools—as well as Avid project and bin sharing. ShareBrowser allows you to search across all EVO storage as well as local, offline, and other network disks. File metadata can be instantly indexed to the database to help users more easily find, preview, and share media assets and projects.


I/O Profiles
EVO is designed and built for digital artists who use applications such as Avid Media Composer, Adobe CC / Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve, and Final Cut Pro. These apps can have extraordinary I/O requirements, and EVO is tuned to give them exactly what they need, right out of the box.
EVO uses advanced caching algorithms to increase the number of video streams per array it can handle. This means you can do more work with a fewer number of disks, which results in a less expensive and more reliable and energy-efficient storage solution.
Preset for Video Apps
EVO is configured with its defaults preset for use with professional video editing applications. These presets are designed to perform well with other applications too, but if you're primarily using audio applications like Pro Tools or Logic Pro with very high track counts, simply change the EVO's I/O profile from Video to Audio for maximum performance.
EVO expansion units (available separately) allow you to increase storage capacity as well as upgrade connectivity.
Ethernet Ports
The EVO can be expanded to have a maximum of 26 Gigabit (1 Gb/s) Ethernet ports. You can also choose to add up to 50 Gb/s Ethernet ports for maximum bandwidth over iSCSI and NAS.
Fiber Channel Ports
The EVO accommodates up to 12 directly attached fiber channel ports in each base unit. If you need more fiber channel ports you can connect a switch to any available port.
Enterprise-Class Drives
The base unit comes with 16 preinstalled disks. Expansion units are available, bringing the total number of disks per managed system to 80. As you add capacity, you can also increase the system's overall capability. An unlimited number of base/expansion nodes can be integrated into a facility.
Up to 26 Directly Attached Users
Up to 26 users (workstations, notebooks, servers) can be directly attached through EVO's Ethernet and fiber channel ports. If you need to support more users, any available fiber channel or Ethernet port can be connected to a switch. And with EVO, there's no per-seat software licensing costs for ShareBrowser, SANmp, and globalSAN.


Media Applications
EVO is designed and built for professional media editing and post-production applications like Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, CC/Premiere Pro, Resolve, Smoke, Scratch, and Pro Tools. Although it can be used with any application, it is designed in particular to handle the intense demands of video and audio editing, in real-time, by many concurrent users.
HBAs, Initiators & Ethernet NICs
Ethernet/NAS users can connect to EVO using a 1 Gb/s, 10 Gb/s, or 10GBase-T Ethernet adapter. Fiber channel SAN workstations can connect to EVO using an HBA from ATTO, Emulex, Apple, or Qlogic. iSCSI SAN users can connect to EVO using an Ethernet adapter and the globalSAN iSCSI initiator for Mac OS X or the Microsoft iSCSI initiator.
Operating Systems
EVO supports Mac OS X and Windows. It can also be used with Linux-based operating systems like RHEL and CentOS. In fact, any operating system that supports iSCSI, fiber channel, SMB, AFP, NFS, FTP, or SFTP can be used with EVO.


Web-Based Admin Tools
EVO's user interface is designed to be intuitive, and offers features ranging from the very basic to the very advanced. And since it's web-based, it can be administered from just about anywhere.
UPS Monitoring
By connecting the EVO to an optional APC uninterruptible power supply, you are able to configure and monitor the UPS through EVO's web interface. If a power problem is detected, EVO can notify you by email and even power itself off if necessary.
Drive Replacement
Only enterprise-class, RAID-edition SATA disks are used in EVO. However, the unfortunate reality is that disks sometimes fail. EVO can send an email to let you know when this happens. You can then do a hot swap or a cold swap to replace the failed disk with a new one. To help with the installation, step-by-step instructions are displayed in the web interface.
Email/SNMP Remote Monitoring
Select which events are important and monitor them via SNMP, or tell EVO to send an email or text message if it detects something happening.
Batch RAID Creation
Use the Queue Manager utility to get your RAID settings defined just as you want them, with options for RAID 0, 1, 4, 5, 6, or 10. Once configured, each new volume comes online almost instantly, and you can have EVO send you an email to let you know when it's finished processing your queue.
Software Upgrades
Continuous development of the EVO OS means that with EVO you have an investment in an efficient and flexible storage server that can potentially improve its tool set and usefulness over time.
