Nearline Parking for Avid NEXIS | E5 NL storage systems
Avid has recently launched Avid NEXIS | E5 NL, a petabyte-scale nearline post production storage system. To simplify Avid | E5 NL management, Marquis has introduced a companion software product called Nearline Parking into the existing Parking family of products. It enables online projects in NEXIS/ISIS to be securely, seamlessly and quickly copied to and from nearline Avid NEXIS | E5 NL.
Using unique data analytics, Nearline Parking overcomes many of the fundamental operational errors found with conventional file movement applications. Firstly, Nearline Parking ensures that any projects copied to Avid | E5 NL are always complete. Secondly, it can also sweep or delete project media that is not uniquely referenced by an active project. Nearline Parking is also fully upgradeable to the analytics-based Project Parking storage management system.
