Avid Adds NEXIS Nearline Storage

Avid adds to its NEXIS range with a high-density on premises solution, NEXIS | E5 NL.

Avid NEXIS | E5 NL is integrated into Avid media applications, services and workflows, and includes a new web-based management console app for managing, controlling and monitoring Avid NEXIS installations.

Avid says that extending the Avid NEXIS | FS (file system) to a secondary storage tier eliminates the need for third-party tools to search for, find and import media from multiple pools of third-party storage, enabling users to locate content distributed throughout their operations more quickly and efficiently.

“Managing multiple storage systems from multiple vendors is costly, time-consuming, and results in slow, unreliable and inefficient workflows,” said Dana Ruzicka, Chief Product Officer at Avid. “With the addition of Avid NEXIS | E5 NL, Avid NEXIS offers customers a comprehensive range of media-optimized storage solutions, from nearline to very high-performance all flash SSD storage, all under one storage architecture and one file system, all with the hallmark scalability, redundancy, and reliability of Avid NEXIS.”

The product is suited for project parking, staging workflows and proxy archive. Up to eight Avid NEXIS | E5 NL engines can be integrated as one ‘virtualizable’ pool of storage, “making it easy for teams to find and access parked assets and projects,” says Ruzicka. “In addition, other Avid NEXIS Enterprise engines can be integrated into a single storage pool and the storage can be partitioned for better archival organization.”

Scalability is from 480 TB of storage to more than 7 PB. It is available in May 2018.
