DNA Evolution, StorageDNA’s intelligent workflow solution built on Linear Tape Open (LTO) and Linear Tape File System (LTFS) technologies, allows you to streamline your file-based workflow, work more efficiently, and save significant storage costs. The innovative workflow solutions allow you to easily archive, find, restore, and directly access digital assets at incredible speeds.

StorageDNA’s solutions power some of the most complex and critical workflows for a wide range of customers from major film studios and television production companies to sports organizations, government agencies, and Fortune 500 corporations. Thank you for your interest in StorageDNA; we look forward to serving you.

DNA Evolution™ is an open platform and delivers an LTO LTFS-powered archive, retrieval, and direct access workflow solution. It helps post environments to dramatically reduce storage costs, enables disaster recovery, and automates time consuming online-offline workflows. DNA Evolution is Avid®, Final Cut Pro® 7, and Adobe® Premiere® “intelligent”, and tightly integrates into shared storage systems.

Key Feature Highlights:

  • Avid, Final Cut Pro 7, and Adobe Premiere integration for bin, sequence, and project archiving
  • Numerous archiving workflows including watch folders, drag ‘n’ drop, and AAF/XML
  • Mini-media asset manager interface with clip browse and low-resolution previews
  • Fastest performance for archives and restores
  • Tight integration with media SAN and NAS systems
  • Backup and disaster recovery for your SAN/NAS system
  • Scale to numerous archive managers
  • Web-based central administration
DNA Evolution™ is the only solution with a “restore and conform from LTO” feature that automates the process of conforming high-resolution media from LTO tape. This feature automates the manual process of conforming high-resolution media, and only brings back what you need for on-lining and final export, to help you save on storage and manpower costs.

In a complete file-based environment, DNA Evolution can provide your pipeline the insurance it needs to quickly recover from failures – including operator errors, accidental deletions, SAN crashes and site-wide disasters. DNA Evolution mirrors your SAN to a low-cost LTO/LTFS tier and keeps multiple point in time copies - enabling you to time travel and recover your lost data.

DNA Evolution only brings back the hi-resolution clips needed directly from LTO tape via an EDL / AAF / XML, and if enabled with an autoloader, it can automatically load and bring back clips across multiple LTO tapes.

LTO tape prvides the most cost-effective and reliable way to store your hi-resolution media compared to online or nearline disk, or removable drives. The cost of LTO tape is 40 – 100 times lower than primary storage, and 10 – 20 times lower than nearline disk. With DNA Evolution, you can keep your hi-res media on LTO tape which now acts as both an archive and a nearline solution.

The DNA Evolution online-offline workflow will help you save time and costs with a faster and more automated restore and conform from LTO workflow and a much smaller SAN.
