Many large broadcast, post and film facilities are already using backup and disaster recovery systems from Marquis Broadcast; this special offer for November 2017 and the infamous ‘Black Friday’ will also enable smaller companies to benefit. Marquis Broadcast is offering 50% off the price of the first 32TB of Workspace Backup, Workspace Sync and/or Project Parking tools, so your company can be safe in the knowledge that your Avid® ISIS® or NEXIS™ work-in-progress is protected and managed by the industry’s leading Avid storage productivity and protection suite.
The ever-increasing capacity of Avid shared storage has completely transformed production processes, with faster networks, greater storage and more concurrent clients operating at ever-higher resolutions. Project Parking has become the industry gold standard for Avid storage management analytics and project portability. The system now features cloud support, delivering a seamless multi-site Avid workflow, ideal for film production and broadcast. Project Parking provides project analytics, visualisation, management and archiving, and can be a valuable tool for billing for usage. It helps companies understand the capacity of productions, allowing them to easily export projects to tier two or cloud storage to make way for a larger incoming production on valuable ISIS or NEXIS storage space.
Marquis’s Workspace Backup is a powerful disaster recovery and business continuity solution, which also now natively supports cloud storage. Designed specifically to protect Avid ISIS and NEXIS systems, Workspace Backup uses detailed analytics of Avid workspaces to ensure the highest levels of integrity of the backup, ensuring the most crucial projects can be immediately and individually recovered to production in any location that can see the backup, whether in cloud or tier two storage.
Workspace Sync provides a higher level of protection, intelligently syncing workspaces – perhaps every 30 minutes – to a second ISIS or NEXIS. This is ideal for intensive, fast turnaround, hard delivery deadline productions, ensuring the maximum loss of any work in progress is only 30 minutes. Both Workspace Sync and Workspace Backup can be used concurrently to provide the most useful combination of disaster recovery and business continuity. The licensing is also highly scalable, so a customer can choose which workspaces need the highest levels of protection. For example, a perpetual software license to fully and automatically protect a 32TB workspace is only $1,125 during the promotion; a small investment to protect a business-critical workspace, especially one so valuable that it might be an uninsurable risk.
Project Parking, Workspace Sync and Workspace Backup all work seamlessly together; one very large benefit of this is that using Project Parking analytics will prevent duplicate and orphaned media propagating into the Workspace Sync or Backup, saving significant amounts of storage whilst also accelerating time-critical sync backup and recovery processes. Of course, you hope you’ll never need disaster recovery tools, but with 50% off the price of the first 32TB licences this month, the number one applications for Avid ISIS NEXIS management, productivity, disaster recovery and business can easily form part of your business continuity plans.
