When we launched the Avere 5000 Series last year, the FXT 5600 model added the most performance, density, and capacity. Customers in the media space quickly adopted it to support cloud-ready workflows that demanded performance.

But, one thing is for certain, fast today is not fast tomorrow. And, we keep developing to let these workloads run in both the cloud and on-premises at their optimal performance. Our next step is the introduction (which happened this week!) of the Avere FXT 5850 Edge filer, which delivers double the performance, capacity and network bandwidth as the Avere FXT 5600.

Let’s look at each of these enhancements.

1. More than 2x higher performance

  • For example, from 4GB/s to 9GB/s aggregate read throughput

2. Double the DRAM and SSD capacity

  • DRAM: From 368 to 768GB
  • SSD: From 9.6 to 19.2TB

3. More than 2x higher network bandwidth

  • From 4x 10GbE to 4x 25GbE (with backwards compatibility to 10GbE)



Among the 5000 Series lineup, the new FXT 5850 Edge Filer takes the top spot, offering value to deliver benefits to challenging environments.

Avere FXT Edge Filer Line-Up 2017

In today’s competitive post production environment, studios are looking to reduce expenditures on local infrastructure and leverage the cloud where they can. But fiddling with critical workloads comes with unique challenges that pose significant risk. With Avere nodes bridging local infrastructure and the cloud, making the shift is more than just possible, it is quickly becoming the preferred way to gain immediate results while supporting long-term goals.

  • Faster time to completion of projects
  • Higher quality comes from reducing latency to important processes and allowing staff to work free of disruptions
  • Simplified operations with global namespace and powerful compute and storage analytics
  • Modernized infrastructure that provides the flexibility to move between local and public cloud resources while supporting cabling for next-gen 25GbE and 100GbE networking

Whether looking to expand an existing Avere cluster or add a new one, the Avere FXT 5850 Edge Filer can fit easily into network-attached storage (NAS) environments and hybrid cloud NAS environments and deliver results quickly. We can’t wait to hear what you think!
