ISIS 5000 is the "Unity replacement" for generic editing facilities. It no longer uses Fibre Channel with ATTO FC-41ES cards, QLogic switches and a Fibre array. It is a Windows 2008 Server computer with a base of 16 drives, that allows clients to connect via 1GbE copper ethernet. The connection back to the server from the switch can be four ethernet cables (link agg back to an Intel Pro/1000 4 port card), or 10gig ethernet to a Force 10 switch with a single 10GbE port, and copper on the front. AVID allows for a SINGLE 10gig connection for direct connect PER CHASSIS (per ISIS Engine). So if you want two 10gig connections, you need two ISIS 5000 chassis.

ISIS 7000 to my knowlege is still Fibre, and is for enterprise solutions (big TV stations) - I don't know a single facility (other than TV stations that I do not deal with) that has ISIS 7000. I bet the networks and CNN must have it.
