Object Matrix Integrated with AWS

The firm’s object based storage solutions are being integrated via API with Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon Glacier.

The integration with Amazon S3 allows for MatrixStore object storage, while the API integration with Amazon Glacier allows for long-term archiving. All assets can be accessed instantly from MatrixStore Vision, regardless of where they are located.
Assets can be sent to AS3 either manually or using automated rules and workflows. When archiving to Amazon Glacier, MatrixStore will move items to Amazon S3 in order to push them to Amazon Glacier.
The next version, which will be demonstrated at NAB, features a number of updates aimed at ensuring a hybrid workflow between the different storage. This includes the ability to perform bulk, expedited, or standard restore from Amazon Glacier. Partial restore from Amazon S3 and Amazon Glacier means users can keep the proxy version local in order to select which part of the high-resolution version in the cloud to restore. This saves from having to download the entire high-res version.
Users will also be able to archive with a Metadata Sidecar File to ensure the associated metadata remains intact. Unique GUI indicators will display when an asset is on-premises, in Amazon S3 or in Amazon Glacier giving users a clear overview of where items are located.

Jonathan Morgan, CEO, Object Matrix, commented: “We believe that the future of storage doesn’t exclusively lie on-premises nor in the cloud, but rather in a mix of the two. You should be able to keep your assets where you need and use them, but you should also be able share those assets around the world and take advantage of cloud Disaster Recovery. By ensuring a streamlined API integration with AWS storage solutions, we are allowing our customers to work local, share global.”
