2016: Accelerate Production and Efficiency With New Avid NEXIS Solutions
our industry, the rapid proliferation of content is driving storage demands
higher and higher. Unfortunately, yesterday’s shared storage solutions don’t
provide the infrastructure, reliability, and control that media organizations
need to optimize production efficiency and keep up with growing content
IBC 2016, we unveiled new high-density, high-availability Avid NEXIS solutions
to help large broadcasters and post-production organizations increase
operational efficiency and maximize the lifetime value of their assets. After
delivering Avid NEXIS earlier this year, we’ve seen an incredible adoption rate
from media organizations of all sizes. And now, we’re extending the NEXIS
family to provide unrivaled reliability and performance for the most demanding
Introducing Avid NEXIS | E5
Avid NEXIS | E5 is an enterprise-class, hyper-dense storage engine that will
help large-scale broadcast and post production companies meet their most
demanding production challenges.
E5 represents a groundbreaking technical achievement for Avid, and offers the
highest level of performance, scalability, and client connections in the
industry. The E5 provides 40GbE connectivity and 80–480 TB of storage capacity
per engine, with the ability to scale up to 1.4 PB of capacity and 9.6 GBps of
bandwidth, supporting more than 2000 DNxHR HD streams or 500 DNxHR 4K streams
across over 300 connected clients in a mere 17U of rackspace.
Introducing Avid NEXIS High Availability
has been providing mission-critical storage solutions for decades—no one better
understands the importance of bulletproof reliability. So it only makes sense
that we’d also provide the industry’s most redundant storage systems.
Avid NEXIS High Availability options increase the reliability and performance
of NEXIS enterprise-class storage systems for the most critical deployments.
The Avid NEXIS Redundant Storage Controller, Redundant System Director, and
Redundant Networking options protect against potential hardware performance
issues, while the Media Mirroring option protects an entire Avid NEXIS system
against up to five simultaneous disk failures—and even an entire engine
the openness of the Avid MediaCentral Platform, Avid NEXIS solutions work with
all top media creation applications—so production teams can work with the
creative tools of their choice and quickly access a shared pool of virtualized
storage resources. NEXIS is fully scalable, so you can select components that
meet your current needs, and easily grow your system along with your business.
Plus, Avid NEXIS is the only scale-out storage solution that allows you to
dynamically tune the system to ensure that high-priority workflows always have
the capacity, performance and data protection levels they require.
