​Masstech In Clover With Hybrid Cloud Store

Masstech Clover is described as a turnkey content suite that bridges the gap between content storage and content management. The storage solutions vendor is also launching a Federated Search feature for its MassStore media object framework.

Debuting at BroadcastAsia, Masstech's Clover targets organizations that are not looking to implement enterprise-level MAM and content storage systems. It is claimed as a unique, all-in-one solution that offers ingest, storage, transcoding, a configurable workflow engine, content lifecycle management, and a simple UI with a full broadcast toolset and a budget-oriented price tag.

Clover comes with pre-defined tape or cloud-based storage, integrated transcode and user-customizable workflows that allow users to automate content processing and delivery into multiple formats. The solution also has an integrated media player that allows users to archive, view proxies, scrub, mark in- and out-points. It also enables partial file restore and embed content with metadata that enables users to find their assets quickly and retrieve them with one click.

Masstech is also showing Federated Search, a new feature that enables Masstech users to locate and retrieve assets stored across multiple Masstech systems wherever in the world those systems might be physically or virtually located.

“One of the things that our customers have asked about is the ability to not only search across sites, but within systems from differing vendors,” said Mike Palmer, chief technology officer. “Federated Search enables organizations such as these to search and retrieve assets from across their entire storage pool, regardless of the MAM or PAM that created and processed the content.”

Masstech will also show FlashNet, its video-centric storage management solution.

“Allowing the integration of multiple private and public clouds into a single name-space, with the option to include existing or new on-premise storage, provides the highest degrees of flexibility, durability, efficiency, and cost-savings,” said Palmer. “Compare this to siloed storage systems with independent buckets and disparate control layers which are not capable of these efficiencies. Masstech solves this issue, homogenizing multiple technologies and service providers into a single object storage name-space, transparent to the MAM, PAM or other management system.”
