Avid NEXIS | Cloud Nearline Storage is now available to ease data storage costs for content creation teams.
Avid has announced the availability of Avid NEXIS | Cloud Nearline Storage for Avid | Edit On Demand, bringing cost-efficient nearline storage to cloud-based content creation workflows. With Avid | Edit On Demand, production teams can now store and access growing libraries of shared content for a fraction of the cost of online storage per terabyte.
With the addition of Avid NEXIS | Cloud Nearline Storage, content creation teams can flexibly access online and nearline content libraries. Nearline storage complements high-performance storage, making it more economical to store long-term assets, such as camera originals, stock footage, and music libraries in the cloud. This economical new storage tier makes Avid | Edit On Demand an, even more, better solution for content creation teams, enabling them to easily spin up editing workgroups in the cloud as needed, with the flexibility to spin them back down when projects are complete.
Speaking about the new storage, Dave Colantuoni, Vice President of Product Management, Video & Media Solutions, Avid, said: “Storing heavy professional media in high-performance cloud storage can become cost-prohibitive, so introducing lower-cost nearline storage makes perfect sense, as long as the content remains readily accessible. Avid NEXIS | Cloud Nearline Storage allows content creation teams to easily migrate content between high-performance cloud storage and economical nearline storage, while keeping everything within reach at all times.”
Avid will be attending the NAB Show in Las Vegas from April 16-19.
