Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), today announced that Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) software has been certified to run with Avid Media Composer video editing software and the Avid MediaCentral media collaboration platform. Nutanix is the first HCI-powered private cloud solution to be certified for Avid products, offering a fully integrated solution for any Avid environment with the hardware platform of choice, built- in hypervisor, and one-click management.

Nutanix cloud software enables customers to increase cross-channel engagement, empower content creators, drive operating efficiency, and improve decision-making that’s uniform across all functions and locations.

“Media companies are facing a wide range of challenges today to ensure post production teams have immediate access to workflows and can collaborate with teams across the globe to accelerate the pace of production,” said Tim Claman, Chief Technology Officer at Avid. “Nutanix helps deliver these capabilities in a user-friendly solution that is not only scalable and powerful but also easy to deploy and maintain to deliver a simplified approach to adopting virtualization and hybrid cloud models.”

A leading software provider in the media and entertainment industry, Avid delivers one of the most open and efficient media platforms, connecting content creation with collaboration, asset protection, distribution, and consumption.

By reducing IT complexity and simplifying management, Nutanix helps significantly reduce barriers to productivity, enabling teams to focus attention on innovation and smoother content delivery.Storing and securing digital content. Because security is designed in Nutanix’s HCI platform, rather than bolted on, digital assets remain more secure with less effort. This helps enable customers to access media assets in a seamless way.
