The Mission-Critical Nature of Data Protection

Whether it be the ability to quickly and easily access files, archive data for future use, or to periodically re-use assets to accelerate new projects—properly protecting your data is imperative to your success.

Intelligent Collaboration

The mainstay of Avid workflows is transcoding efficiency, bin locking, and project sharing.

Scale Logic shared storage with HyperLoc Bin Locking is as versatile and efficient as Avid is in handling formats of any resolution and projects of any size. This allows incredibly high-performing multi-stream and multi-cam editing that reduces storage administrative tasks for your creative team.  

The included Scale Logic Media Browser’s powerful search, tag and index features make working with large data sets a breeze. Additional transcoding and data movement tools simplify data ingest and archive to LTO, additional disk, or to cloud storage.

At the heart of any Scale Logic offering is data resiliency. Avid teams benefit from unlimited snapshots that allow editors to retrieve deleted files or recover quickly from human mistakes; and administrators can create disaster recovery and business continuity plans to recover from virus or ransomware attacks in a snap.

Cost Effective and Seamless AVID® Nexis™ Upgrade

Cost-Effective and Seamless Avid NEXIS Upgrades

With its long history and in-depth knowledge of Avid workflows, Scale Logic seamlessly supports everything within the Avid Media Composer environment.

This includes using Scale Logic shared storage for additional capacity for MXF files for the workflow. Camera RAW is huge in size, so using Scale Logic storage for the landing spot for these important files makes the most sense from a cost-savings perspective. High-speed storage is fast enough for Camera RAW to be transcoded in place for pre-edit, and transcoded media for Avid editing can remain on the Scale Logic storage for edit in place. Upon job completion, you have the option to move the content from online to nearline storage, LTO or any private or public S3-compliant cloud or tape with Scale Logic integration tools.

Expand Your Avid NEXIS Storage

Successfully solve Avid NEXIS storage shortcomings with Scale Logic.

Scale Logic storage offers a significantly economical alternative for expanding your Avid Nexis. Scale Logic offers a high-uptime system in case your team can’t have more than 20 minutes of downtime, and also offers tools as well as our Interoperability Lab to ensure your Avid environment always remains cutting-edge. Meanwhile, our built-in tools allow editors to quickly and easily recover in the event of human error.

Browse Your Media,
Any Way You’d Like

Accessing your files in a familiar way is highly important—after all, when immersed in a project, the last thing you need is to learn yet another tool or interface.

Our Media Browser (MAM-Lite) Solution looks and feels like a simple non-linear editor (NLE). If you have used Final Cut Pro® X, Adobe® Productions, Avid Media Composer, or DaVinci 

Resolve, our Media Browser is intuitive with no learning curve. It’s very easy to pick up and master.

Small
Workgroups from 2 to 10 editors and creatives may start on NX2 12 Bay, reaching speeds over 2000MB/sec for multi-streaming real-time performance with the ability to scale in place with a single file system up to 4 additional JBOD storage enclosures—adding storage capacity and performance.

Medium

Workgroups from 5 to 25 can choose 24 and 36 bay models starting at 96TB to 5PB storage capacity and 4000MB/sec to 8000MB/sec streaming performance respectively. This also can be expanded in place with both storage and performance as needed with up to a 2PB single global namespace.

Medium or Large

It is common for Avid teams to require high-availability when project deadlines are tight and the loss of access to the storage for more than 15 minutes could be a disaster for your team.
High-availability Scale Logic ZX storage provides less than a one-minute server node failover and uses Virtual IP technology to ensure your team stays connected should there be a failure in the server room. Capacity starts at 96TB and can grow to 9PB.

Flash/NVMe Acceleration
Used as an add-on to any Scale Logic system for medium or large workgroups to provide any and all of the following: Adobe Projects file, thumbnail, and waveform cache acceleration. File System Metadata Acceleration. Read ahead streaming cache to allow higher stream counts. Adaptive Read Cache that keeps more active project data in the cache. Dedicated flash based file system(s). Flash/NVMe cache size can start at 11.52TB and scales to 92TB.
Archive and Data Movement

Whether you are a small, medium or large team, adding archive and data movement software onto any Scale Logic storage solution allows you to archive old projects to LTO, spinning disk, or public/private S3-compliant cloud storage or LTO tape of your choice.
