Zodiak Media chooses the MatrixStore platform
Swedish indie producer Zodiak Media has added 300 terabytes of MatrixStore object storage to provide consolidated nearline storage for multiple workflows at its Stockholm offices.
“Conducting our research, we knew we needed a storage system that could not only meet our current, and future requirements around ingest and post-production workflows but also free up our staff to move away from storage and media management to work on tasks that add value to the core business,” stated Mikael Royson, Group CFO Banijay Zodiak Nordic. “Object Matrix was the storage partner that offered the most viable solution to meet our current needs as well as the needs we may have in the future, “ he added.
Object Matrix object storage, and integrated workflow solutions, are trusted by the post-production community across the globe to protect digital assets in a manner that allows them to be protected, tagged and shared on demand. Self-managing, private cloud technology, coupled with intuitive and easy to use interfaces, enables transformational change that brings rapid returns on the investment for any organisation.
“Working with Zodiak Media to meet both their tactical and strategic goals and also for them to be our first customer in Sweden is an honour,” stated Nick Pearce, co-founder Object Matrix. “It is also further proof that global organisations that manage thousands of hours of footage require more innovative solutions, like those provided by Object Matrix, to protect, curate and share their assets”.
The MatrixStore platform chosen by Zodiak Media AB consists of:
- 300 terabytes net of 10gigE connected nearline storage
- Vision (with Glooport from Glookast) for browsing and sharing content
- DropSpot ingest and content parking
- MXFS (MatrixStore file system) and SMB file system interfaces.
Object Matrix valued partner, Stockholm based Digital Video Tools, managed the design and implementation process and provides on-going support of the installation.
