SNS upgrades Evo storage
Studio Network Systems says it has begun shipping an upgraded version of the Evo, a hardware system designed for storing and sharing video in post-production. The unit is compatible with both Macs and PCs, and a number of video editing suites, including Avid, Premiere Pro, Pro Tools and Final Cut Pro. Owners can store uncompressed HD, and define file- or volume-level access.
Connection options include Fibre Channel, iSCSI and Ethernet, the last allowing for an optional 10Gb of throughput; in any case, users can bridge older forms of storage such as Xserve RAIDs in order to expand the default capacity. An Evo can now be configured with as much as 24TB, and comes with four licenses for Postmap, an asset management application. Prices must be obtained from retailers or directly from SNS.
