ISIS 5000
The benchmark for affordable shared storage
Shared storage value
Easy on your resources
ISIS 5000 is an advanced, reliable, real-time shared media storage
system that is affordable for independent post, local broadcast,
education, and corporate applications. Designed for media facilities
and broadcasters requiring up to 48TB usable capacity and/or up
to 40 client connections, ISIS 5000 utilizes the industry’s leading
storage software technology to deliver stable operation, high
performance media access, and unmatched value.
ISIS 5000 supports your business with long term affordability
that goes easy on your resources. With knowledgeable assistance
available from Avid and Avid ACSR-trained reseller partners,
set-up and installation are quick and straightforward. Included
client licenses simplify deployment, and powerful, highly-intuitive
administration tools make user set-up, storage management, system
monitoring and diagnostics something you can handle directly
without a dedicated system manager.
ISIS 5000 fully supports Avid® editing systems and Interplay®
workgroups as well as Apple Final Cut Pro editors. Based on proven
technology from the leader in shared media storage and backed by
the most rigorous real-time performance and workflow verification,
ISIS 5000 provides unparalleled peace of mind.
ISIS performance
Avid ISIS 7000 (formerly Avid Unity™ ISIS) broke new ground for
highly-scalable performance, capacity, and connectivity. Today, ISIS
File System software supports intensive, round-the-clock media
production at major broadcast and production facilities worldwide.
Based on that software, ISIS 5000 provides reliable, real-time
quality of service, self-balancing data architecture, and predictable
linear scalability. FlexDrive, the flexible and dynamically scalable
storage workspace technology pioneered by Avid, ensures your
ability to respond to ongoing changes and opportunity.
Greater collaboration
ISIS 5000 adjusts to your business needs instead of requiring you
to work around storage limitations. Scalable storage and flexible
workspaces lets you consolidate workflow islands into a connected,
fast-moving workgroup using Avid or Apple Final Cut Pro editors. The
ability to change the capacity of storage volumes on the fly and quick
user and system administration saves time and increases productivity.
ISIS 5000 qualification with Avid Interplay and AirSpeed® Multi Stream
servers brings the full power and productivity of Avid workflow to
a wide range of broadcast, post production, education, and other
content creators worldwide.
Models that fit your needs
Three different models address a range of capacity and
connectivity needs from 32 to 64 TB (pre-RAID) and from 4 to 40
client connections. Each ISIS 5000 Storage Engine houses sixteen
2 TB disk drives arrayed in three 4+1 RAID5 ranks plus a hot spare
drive. The ISIS 5000 Engine houses an ISIS System Director CPU
to perform metadata management and is protected with mirrored,
field-replaceable system drives. Depending on the model, four 1Gbit
Ethernet ports or a 10Gbit Ethernet port provide connectivity to one
or two external switches, or directly connect to four 1Gbit clients. In
addition, you have the option of separately sourcing a switch for the
DC model.
Class-leading TCO
Not only is ISIS 5000 easy to use, it’s easy to own. Every feature
of ISIS 5000 provides more reliable operation, minimizes resource
needs, and allows you to become more agile and responsive to new
opportunities than ever before. Avid’s thorough testing provides the
predictability you need to make confident business decisions. One
or three years Avid Priority Support is included, letting you lock in
knowledgeable, comprehensive support at no extra cost.
Partner with Avid
Avid’s singular focus on supporting real-time shared media
production has helped more media businesses raise productivity
and increase content quality than all other systems combined. Now
the power of ISIS technology enables more content creators than
ever before to build their value while lowering their costs.
