Avids on Xsan or StorNext?
No problem.

SAN Fusion is an easy and cost-effective solution that allows you to use Avid Media Composer with your existing Xsan or StorNext infrastructure.

By using an existing Xsan or StorNext volume as a backing-store for SAN Fusion's virtualized workspaces, editors can experience authentic Unity-style bin sharing and locking from within Media Composer 5.5.3 through 7. While Media Composer 8 is still in testing, there are no known issues at this time. Unlike other solutions that purport to make Avid work with Xsan or StorNext, SAN Fusion is a client-side application with no additional server or minimum number of seats to buy.

SAN Fusion clients mount and unmount workspaces on demand through our intuitive GUI to provide Media Composer a real-time translation layer between it and Apple's Xsan or Quantum's StorNext filesystems. The end result is the best of both worlds: Avid's first class bin and media sharing combined with either Apple's storage-agnostic low (or no) cost cluster filesystem or the performance, reliability, and scalability of StorNext.
