Avid Shared Storage

Avid Storage Affordable Alternative

The Avid shared storage consists of Avid Nexis, ISIS 5500, Avid Nexis Pro & ISIS 7500 details of which can be found here. We provide an affordable alternative that is a software-defined storage solution that turns any Windows Server-based NAS to Avid compatible shared storage.

AVID Shared Storage

The software-defined storage architecture of our compatible Avid Shared Storage allows customers to select components required for their current workflows, and expand storage capacity and bandwidth later as their business grows.

The shared storage provides access to multiple Avid systems that can be accessed by one and the same Avid project simultaneously, with support for native Avid bin locking and project sharing.

Our compatible Avid Shared Storage is licensed per NAS server; it supports as many clients as will fit the storage size and network bandwidth for accessing the files.

Unlimited clients allow you to connect to the shared storage and utilise the benefits of our compatible Avid Storage.  Alternatively, if you have 3 users and do not need the full blown product license, you are able to use the software on a per seat basis allowing you to upgrade at a later date.
