Model Details

This is a generic description of this model. For exact description, getdetails of the actual system.

Reliable media storage is fundamental to successful broadcast and media production. The higher the stakes, the more essential flexible, scalable and real-time networked storage with rock solid reliability becomes. That is why the world’s most demanding broadcast and professional production organizations rely on ISIS 7000. Avid ISIS 7000 uniquely combines highest performance, availability, scalability, and an open architecture with powerful yet simple to use management tools.


Unparalleled performance

Effortless performance and efficient bandwidth delivery in editing-intensive environments set Avid ISIS 7000 apart. Each Avid ISIS 7000 Engine delivers up to 400 MB/s of aggregate useable bandwidth, sustaining linear performance even as editor client counts increase, up to 9.6 GB/s (24 Engines) easily meeting the challenge of large scale, high resolution production.


Smarter storage

Avid ISIS 7000 is based on a highly scalable, self-balancing distributed architecture. Each storage blade includes its own processor, so when you add capacity, you also add intelligent processing power. ISIS Mirroring is utilized for highest real time performance.


Exceptional expandability

With tested and proven ability to scale up to 330 real-time multi stream 50Mb/sec clients. ISIS 7000 easily scales as your workflow or facility grows, and media assets now become easily accessible to all users across the enterprise. Capacity ranges from 32TB to 1.53PB raw capacity (24 × 64TB Engines) enough to store up to 1354 fully protected hours of uncompressed 10bit HD, or 25,493 hours of 50 Mb/s compressed HD

Noactive single point of failure

No active single point of failure

ISIS media file mirroring mirrored metadata disks; redundant network switching and cooling.

      Unmatched bandwidth scalability

      Up to 1.53 PB storage

      Scale from 32 TB to 1.53 PB raw capacity, 768 TB with high performance ISIS Mirroring protection.

          Unmatched bandwidth scalability

          Unmatched bandwidth scalability

          Efficient, linear scaling of bandwidth and usable performance as ISIS storage Engines are added.

              Data redistribution

              Data redistribution

              Intelligent storage blades autonomously reconstruct the data in the background while maintaining real-time performance.



                  Instantly respond to change by dynamically adding workspaces – and or increasing or decreasing workspace capacity without interrupting operations.

                      Other features

                      Gigabit Ethernet infrastructure

                      Employs standard Ethernet technology, eliminating the need for mixed Fiber Channel and Ethernet networks

                      i4000 Blade

                      Higher density and lower cost per TB with 4 TB intelligent storage blade

                      Integrated switching

                      Integrated switch blades enable redundant Engine interconnection and client connection to storage. External switch support augments larger client connection requirements

                      Ultra-fast drive rebuild

                      Replaced drives are rebuilt up to 20 times faster than conventional RAID techniques

                      Unified Licensing

                      Software licensing tracked by Avid
