Object Matrix has announced its successful certification between MatrixStore, its object storage solution with Quantum’s advanced file system and data management platform, StorNext.
Quantum’s high-speed parallel file system StorNext, supports organisations planning to store large, rapidly growing data sets and which intend to help drive business value from that data. As a high-performance, multi-tier shared storage platform it is designed for data-intensive workloads making it one of the fastest streaming file systems in the media industry.
Object Matrix’s MatrixStore is a media focused object storage platform that provides scale, security and future proof access to both content and metadata. MatrixStore is a hybrid-cloud and object storage platform that enables organisations to benefit financially and operationally by modernising their video workflows.
The joint solution enables customers to seamlessly tier data between StorNext and MatrixStore. Using the MatrixStore S3 interface, the integration was completed just prior to IBC paving the way for Quantum to resell Object Matrix products and services from Q4 2019 onwards.
According to Jon Morgan, CEO, Object Matrix, “The in-depth certification program, and the close collaboration of the technical teams on this project has produced a well-rounded solution set that we believe is unparalleled across the rest of the industry. Both companies share a similar DNA in terms of being heavily focused on the media industry, understanding media organisations’ challenges, solving them and providing world class support throughout the lifetime of the relationship. We look forward to working with Quantum’s commercial and technical teams in continuing to meet media challenges.”
Eric Bassier, Senior Director, Quantum, added, “Our StorNext customers are increasingly looking to object storage for large-scale content repositories and for content distribution. This certification with Object Matrix further expands Quantum’s ecosystem of certified object store providers, and enables our customers to extend their StorNext shared storage environment with an Objext Matrix nearline content repository”
