We’re excited to announce that Avid NEXIS, the industry’s first and only software-defined storage platform specifically designed for storing and managing media, is now available! This award-winning platform enables fully virtualized storage so media organizations can adjust storage capacity mid-project, without disrupting workflows.

Avid NEXIS delivers unrivaled media storage flexibility, scalability, and control for both Avid-based and third-party workflows. Designed to serve the smallest production teams as powerfully as the largest media enterprises, it’s the only storage platform built with the flexibility to grow with customers at every stage of their business.

Thanks to the openness of Avid Everywhere, Avid NEXIS works with all top media creation applications, including Avid Media Composer, Avid Pro Tools, Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, Grass Valley EDIUS, and many more. Production teams can quickly access a shared pool of virtualized storage resources, which dramatically increases their efficiency.

“We are thrilled about the versatility of the new Avid NEXIS storage platform. Avid has done a great job of adding in the flexibility needed for the many different types of productions that access a single storage system. We are very excited to offer this new technology to our clients.”

—Jon Mauldin, vice president Technology at FotoKem NLS

Avid NEXIS is the only scale-out storage solution that enables our customers to dynamically tune the system to ensure that high-priority workflows always have the capacity, performance and data protection levels they require. Users can give critical projects maximum performance, while throttling back on less critical workflows. 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.

The unique modularity of Avid NEXIS enables teams to mix and match storage engines and elastically scale capacity from as little as 20 TB to over 1.4 PB in a single system, without any interruption in service or down time. All Avid NEXIS systems are powered by the Avid NEXIS | FS file system, so customers experience consistent performance, reliability, and protection, regardless of configuration size.

The Avid NEXIS family includes several new storage engine options, designed to meet any scalability and density requirement:
