    Nexis over WAN: Hear me out

    I know that Nexis Client Manager can't be expected to work over a WAN connection for all kinds of reasons- latency, limited bandwidth, etc.- but I'm wondering if there's a solution for providing Nexis-style bin locking for users collaborating remotely. I am not expecting to playback media from a Nexis over a WAN connection, just to access bins and project metadata the way we're used to on premises. The goal would be project sharing/bin locking over the internet, with local copies of the media at each end.

    I have yet to try out Nexis Cloudspaces, but my understanding is that while these workspaces can be mounted and accessed via the Nexis Client Manager on an editor's computer, they can't be used for realtime access to media and project data (again, for obvious reasons.) Still, since bins rarely get larger than a few MB, could Media Composer open a project directly from a 'Cloudspace' while using media stored on a local disk?

    I've also heard of a product by StorageDNA called Fabric, which I believe puts some filers and cache in front of a Nexis in order to facilitate project sharing and general file syncing across remote endpoints. Has anyone used this product?

    Any other third-party solutions out there?

    Thanks in advance,

    I'd be interested to know if you find anything out. We are in a similar situation (local media but wanting to share a cloud-based project with bin locking). I'm wondering if Mimiq can be used with AWS or something like this?
