    Replacing Nexis Drives

    Hello everyone,

    I hope you'll excuse a daft question, but I'm currently assessing whether or not to splash out on a Nexis storage solution, and I'm just wondering if Avid are still clinging on to the idea that their soak-tested super-duper drives are the only ones that you can populate in their most recent range of Nexis enclosures? 

    I know that was the story with older shared storage solutions, but things - and drives - have come a long way.

     

    Thank you,

    Christopher

    I was trying to make a bit a joke. There's a real quality control issue to allow drives that haven't been tested to be used in the system. The drives are the fundamental most important part of the system.

    Feel free to use any brand of Ethernet cable you'd like.
