BURLINGTON, Mass., April 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Avid® (Nasdaq: AVID) today announced the availability of Avid NEXIS | Cloud Nearline Storage for Avid | Edit On Demand, bringing highly cost-efficient nearline storage to cloud-based content creation workflows. Production teams relying on the Avid | Edit On Demand editorial-in-the-cloud SaaS solution can now easily store and access growing libraries of shared content at a fraction of the per-terabyte cost of online storage.  

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. And, because it’s Avid NEXIS storage, NEXIS | Cloud Nearline Storage is easy to manage and works seamlessly with Media Composer, as well as the growing list of certified third-party solutions integrated with Avid | Edit On Demand. This economical new storage tier makes Avid | Edit On Demand an even more compelling 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. 

“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,” said Dave Colantuoni, Vice President of Product Management, Video & Media Solutions, Avid. “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.”
