Burlington, MA (June 1, 2018)–Avid has shipped its new NEXIS | E5 NL nearline storage product, a high-density on-premises solution to the Avid NEXIS family.
The unit allows Avid customers to manage media across various online, nearline, and archive storage resources and integrates with Avid media applications, services and workflows. To that end, it includes a new web-based Avid NEXIS management console for managing, controlling and monitoring Avid NEXIS installations.
Avid NEXIS l E5 NL can be accessed through MediaCentral | Cloud UX or Media Composer and also integrates with MediaCentral | Production Management, MediaCentral | Asset Management, and MediaCentral | Editorial Management to drive collaboration, including features such as project and bin sharing. Extending the Avid NEXIS | FS (file system) to a secondary storage tier allows users to search for, find and import media, enabling them to locate content distributed throughout their operations.
Avid NEXIS | E5 NL streamlines the workflow between active and non-active assets, allowing media organizations to park assets as well as completed projects on high-density nearline storage, and keep them within reach for rediscovery and reuse. Up to eight Avid NEXIS | E5 NL engines can be integrated as one virtualizable pool of storage, making content and associated projects and bins more accessible. In addition, other Avid NEXIS Enterprise engines can be integrated into a single storage system that is partitioned for archival organization.
The unit offers scalability from 480 TB of storage to more than 7 PB by connecting multiple Avid NEXIS | E5 NL engines together as a single nearline system, and that storage infrastructure can be provisioned with required capacity and fault-tolerance characteristics.
Users can configure, control and monitor Avid NEXIS using the updated management console that looks and feels like a MediaCentral | Cloud UX application. Its dashboard provides an overview of the system’s performance, bandwidth, and status, as well as access to configure and manage workspaces, storage groups, user access, notifications, and other functions.
