Object Matrix Partners With Cloudfirst For Software Defined Archives

The vendors’ integration will enable their Software Defined Archive (SDA) platform to work across a wide range of storage platforms: from LTO, to Object Matrix’s MatrixStore, and to public cloud.

MatrixStore, the media-focused hybrid cloud solution from Object Matrix and Cloudfirst’s SDA are intended to help de-risk a media company’s cloud strategy. As well as virtualising the hardware storage stack the solution provides SMB, NFS, S3, FC (SCSI) and native access through a global namespace spanning all storage tiers and technologies.

The combination also allows for built-in automated background migration of content from legacy LTO archives to newer storage platforms. Because of the software virtualisation, current workflows can be maintained during the migration period.
Brian Campanotti, President and CEO of Cloudfirst commented: “The integration of MatrixStore with our unified storage orchestration platform de-risks the move to private or hybrid cloud environments while maximising the ability of media companies to re-use existing infrastructure and reduce costs.”
For Object Matrix, Nick Pearce-Tomenius, added:“Large broadcasters are looking for unified interfaces from companies that understand their unique workflows. The result is an integration that fits well in the broadcast infrastructure and is flexible to adapt to evolving requirements.”
