Available as an add-on service, it enables small- to medium-size news, sports, and post-production organisations to move their onsite projects and media offsite, and gives them the ability to scale storage on demand. As it's part of the NEXIS workflow, Cloudspaces can be activated without the need for any additional software, and doesn't require any complex configuration to setup or maintain. 

Key benefits of NEXIS | Cloudspaces 

Power of Avid NEXIS Avid NEXIS | Cloudspaces uses the same system as your existing NEXIS storage, so it's easy and intuitive to get started. All new Avid NEXIS systems come with 2 TB of cloud storage as part of a free trial, so you can start storing media in the cloud immediately. Get all the robust workspace management and user access control of Avid NEXIS in an easy-to-manage and deploy cloud-based storage service.

Safely back up or park media
Avid NEXIS | Cloudspaces lets you sync or park on-premises Avid NEXIS workspaces to the cloud using common media management tools like Marquis Workspace, Windows File Explorer, and macOS Finder. This is more efficient and secure than manual processes, which come with a high degree of risk and human error. 

Free up Avid NEXIS storage
Instead of resorting to NAS or external drives when budgets are tight, Avid NEXIS | Cloudspaces makes it easy to offload projects and media you're not currently using. Avid NEXIS manages your cloudspaces alongside your workspaces, so you can spend less time searching for and wrangling media and more time creating.

Super-simple setup
Avid NEXIS | Cloudspaces only needs one-step activation and configuration from the Avid NEXIS Management Console. It leverages existing Avid NEXIS user access controls for end-to-end security. You can configure multiple cloudspaces for better organisation and searchability, and even use your own media management tools.

Gain better workflow and cost efficiency
Avid NEXIS | Cloudspaces eliminates the time wasted manually shuttling media to and wrangling media from external DAS and NAS storage devices, so you can keep production moving and turn around more projects faster. And with a variety of subscription plans available, you can match your storage expense to your business needs, with the ability to scale capacity on demand.



As of today, you can add an annual NEXIS | Cloudspaces subscription to any new NEXIS storage you buy. If you have an existing NEXIS storage setup, you can log into your Avid account and click 'Add Cloudspaces' to subscribe to Cloudspaces on a monthly basis.
