​Avid Shows Nexis E5 NL Nearline Storage at IBC 2018

The Avid Nexis E5 NL targets project parking, staging workflows and proxy archive and streamlines the workflow between active and non-active assets.

“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, [we] offers customer 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.”

Extending the Avid Nexis 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.

 It allows media organizations to park assets and completed projects on high-density nearline storage, and keep them within easy reach for rediscovery and reuse. Up to eight Nexis E5 NL engines can be integrated as one virtualizable pool of storage.

A feature of the product is the ability to configure, control and monitor Avid Nexis using the updated management console aligned with MediaCentral | Cloud UX.
