Avid NEXIS™ is the world’s first and only software-defined storage platform that 
enables true storage virtualization for any media application. This powerful system delivers unmatched flexibility, scalability, control, and extensibility to Avid® MediaCentral™ Platform applications. Simply mix and match engines to form virtualized pools of storage to streamline, expand, and accelerate workflows. And it provides greater expansion opportunities, configurability, and agility to handle today's unpredictable production requirements and challenges — capabilities not possible with Avid ISIS.

  • Gain flexibility with a software-defined storage platform
    Avid NEXIS easily integrates into both Avid and third-party application workflows, as well as solutions across MediaCentral, to accelerate media production. Get on-demand access to a shared pool of centralized storage that can be quickly provisioned and repurposed. Tailor and tune each workspace’s capacity, performance, and drive protection to the project and client. And conveniently manage the system through a web interface.

  • Boost performance and speed
    Need more power to handle high-res finishing? With new 9.6 TB and 19.2 TB SSD Media Packs available for Avid NEXIS | E2 engines, you get the access speed, increased throughput, and reliability you need to accelerate 4K mastering workflows. Edit bandwidth-intensive media in real time with up to 8x greater read performance over hard disk drives. Plus, because there are no moving parts, it adds great robustness to your workflow too.

  • Get incredible scalability and protection
    Powered by the common Avid NEXIS | FS file system, Avid NEXIS easily scales to accommodate the smallest teams to the largest media enterprises, offering up to 4.8 PB of total storage and more than 20 GB/s of bandwidth in a single system. Its scale-out architecture enables you to mix and match engines in a single system, upgrade capacity and bandwidth as needed, and add redundancy when high availability is required. All while providing the bulletproof security and fail-safe disk protection you need.

  • Make changes on the fly
    Media production is unpredictable. With Avid NEXIS, you can make changes dynamically, without disruption or downtime. Give critical projects and high-priority teams maximum performance while throttling back on less important workflows. Enable remote and collaborative workflows with Media Composer | Cloud Remote and MediaCentral. And easily expand your workflow to new platform applications and services.
