Object Matrix and Spectra Logic Launch Integrated Storage Solution
MatrixStore and BlackPearl Deliver Intelligent and Tiered Storage Workflow
Cardiff, Wales and BOULDER, Colo., 30th August, 2017
Object Matrix and Spectra Logic have announced an integrated and holistic storage solution across multiple storage tiers, whilst ensuring the security and integrity of the content within storage.
The joint solution combines Object Matrix’s Digital Content Governance Platform, MatrixStore with the Spectra® BlackPearl® Converged Storage System.
Object Matrix’s MatrixStore ensures organisations have access to their content immediately as required and without delay. Not only is content more easily accessed, but it is also more secure and protected within this platform. By providing automated and integrated business continuity functionality, users are able to continue managing content even in the case of an outage.
The Spectra Logic BlackPearl acts as an object storage gateway to storage. It enables the use of RESTful interfaces to manage large amounts of data on multiple storage domains including online and nearline disk, LTFS tape, as well as public cloud.
The integrated solution uses the MatrixStore and BlackPearl APIs to achieve automated archive from the MatrixStore Nearline through to BlackPearl. A great strength of the solution is that when this archive action occurs a searchable stub is left behind in MatrixStore. User-selected storage policies will be automatically enforced by the solution. According to your business needs, assets can also be easily deleted, restored, or copied to another folder. Assets and proxies can also be searched, viewed and shared via the MatrixStore Vision browser interface.
“As media workflows become more and more complex, there is an increased need for both flexibility and automation in media workflows,” commented Nick Pearce-Tomenius, Sales & Marketing Director, Object Matrix. “This joint offering provides our customers with a tightly integrated, secure, tiered storage system, ensuring their assets are where they need them when they need them.”
“The combination of BlackPearl and MatrixStore delivers a fully flexible workflow right through the storage chain,” added Matt Star, Chief Technology Officer, Spectra Logic. “The MatrixStore interface is extremely intuitive, feature rich and easy to use. Automation is a key feature of the Object Matrix- BlackPearl integration, that makes the lives of our customers that much easier.”
The integrated solution will be demonstrated at IBC from 15th to 18th September, on the Object Matrix (6.C28) and Spectra Logic (7.J30) stands.
