Avid’s new Unity ISIS 2.0 helps fast-paced sports environments
Avid’s new Unity ISIS 2.0 system is suited to fast-paced sport production environments, where reliability and performance are critical to success. It offers up to 384TB of storage and the ability to scale up to 330 real-time clients with full system monitoring.
Avid said customers will be able to reduce administrative costs associated with maintaining multiple storage systems and increase productivity by extending the collaborative capabilities of the Avid Unity ISIS system to all staff involved in the production process.
Avid Unity ISIS is a blade-based storage subsystem that features intelligent dual-drive storage elements, integrated Ethernet switching and redundant power and cooling. Unlike common storage area networks (SANs), the self-balancing Unity ISIS architecture distributes data and metadata so each intelligent storage element can make instant decisions that collectively optimize the performance, capacity and health of the entire system.
The system also automatically adapts to component failures and replacements without delay and provides uninterrupted availability and performance. This, Avid said, allows customers in high-pressure broadcast, film or post-production environments to work without downtime, saving time and money.
