Avid Adds More Punch To Nexis

​Avid has doubled the capacity of NEXIS, its enterprise class storage system. The platform supports up to 48 Media Packs across a single system, enabling customers to mix and match a combination of NEXIS E5, E4 and E2 engines.

With this new release, customers can scale the system’s total capacity up to nearly 3PB of total storage with up to 19.2 GB/seconds of bandwidth. This is said to be capable of delivering 250 streams of Sony XAVC-Intra 59p UHD or more than 680 streams of DNxHD-220 media.

NEXIS is claimed to be the only scale-out storage solution with “adaptive protection”, enabling customers to tune the system to ensure that high-priority workflows always have the capacity, performance and data protection levels they require.

“Media organizations need more robust storage infrastructure, greater reliability and control, and closer collaboration in order to create high-quality and engaging content,” said Alan Hoff, vice president, Market Solutions, Avid. “These new innovations for Avid NEXIS deliver the most resilient storage system in the industry with unmatched scalability, together with high-availability options that address these needs and boost operational efficiency.”

“Customers can give critical projects maximum performance, while throttling back on less critical workflows,” says Avid. “This ability lets teams react quickly to changes, adjusting performance and protection levels to match the needs of a project at any stage in the workflow.”
