MXFS (MatrixStore File System)

High Performance Local File System Access

Many applications require locally mounted file system access to read or write data. The Object Matrix solution MXFS provides that access on Windows, Mac or Linux:

  • MXFS is a client application that represents a MatrixStore vault as a drive letter on Windows clients or a local volume on Mac on Linux
  • MXFS can run on one, or many client machines with each instance providing access to a MatrixStore Vault
  • Allows MatrixStore to easily fit into your existing workflows with most existing tool-sets
  • Packed with features to optimise the performance and reliability of sending data, and, the security of data between the client machine and the server
  • When used on multiple client machines it can provide a very high aggregate bandwidth to the cluster
  • Packed with features to optimise the performance and reliability of sending data, and, the security of data between the client machine and the server

Key Features

  • Provides fast local file system access to MatrixStore object storage
  • Direct Access to your content without the expense of 3rd party gateways
  • Enables content to be accessed directly from your desktop applications
  • Enables user-driven workflows
  • It is future proof. When you write with one interface you can read with any other. Not the same for other erasure code based platforms
  • Browse and stream content from MatrixStore to your PC
  • Easy to ingest, simple to drag and drop clips
  • Oh, And it is completely, 100% free

SMB

Network File System Access

Many organisations like to set up network file system shares for MatrixStore to allow clients and applications to quickly write or read data via standard interfaces. MatrixStore supports SMB/CIFS protocol access via a Samba application that runs on Linux based servers.

  • Provides file system access across your organisation without needing to install special software on client machines
  • Optionally launch multiple Samba servers against MatrixStore vaults when wider bandwidth is required
  • Runs on MatrixStore Hub hardware (See configurations)
  • Centralised control of multiple Samba servers and user access rights via the MatrixStore Administrator application
  • Supports SMB and CIFS protocols – please enquire if NFS is required

FTPConnect

FTP Access to MatrixStore

The traditional file transmission protocol (FTP) is a ubiquitous and convientent way to move data from one machine to another remote machine. MatrixStore FTPConnect is an application that sits on a server and that allows FTP clients to connect to it whilst relaying the data sent/read to and from the MatrixStore server.

  • FTPConnect can be run on Mac, Windows or Linux
  • FTPConnect can optionally be run on the MatrixStore Hub (See configurations)
  • Allows MatrixStore to easily fit into your existing workflow with many existing tool-sets
  • Centralised administration of FTPConnect can be achieved from the MatrixStore Administration application including user access rights
  • An alternative option is to add FTP access is to use FileZilla on top of MXFS

S3Connect

S3 API Access to MatrixStore

Many modern applications can write to Object Storage solutions using the Amazon S3 API. MatrixStore supports S3 via S3Connect, an application that sits on a server and that allows S3 clients to connect to it whilst relaying the data sent/read to and from the MatrixStore server.

  • S3Connect runs on Linux
  • S3Connect can optionally be run on the MatrixStore Hub (See configurations)
  • Allows MatrixStore to easily fit into your existing workflow with many existing tool-sets
  • Centralised administration of S3Connect can be achieved from the MatrixStore Administration application including user access rights

NFS

NFS provides a standard means of accessing MatrixStore object storage without the need for client software.

  • Provides file system access across your organisation without needing to install special software on client machines
  • Option to launch multiple NFS servers against different MatrixStore vaults when wider bandwidth is required
  • Centralised control of multiple NFS servers and user access rights via the MatrixStore Administrator application
  • Unlike other clustered storage solutions, the NFS server runs on an external Linux gateway server, therefore protecting the nodes from potential security breaches or hacks
