MXFS (MatrixStore File System)
High-Performance Local File System to Object Storage 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.
Installing Dokan Library on Windows Based Systems
Dokan Library is required to use MXFS
If you are installing MXFS of versions between 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124, the Dokan version to use is 0.8.0. All the necessary files are supplied by Object Matrix within the provided install packages.
Network File System Access
Many organisations implement SMB network shares to enable users and applications to write or read data via standard interfaces. MatrixStore object storage supports access to content via SMB thus ensuring existing workflows work out of the box.
AWS S3 Access to MatrixStore Object Storage
Many media workflow applications access cloud and object storage solutions using the AWS S3 API. S3Connect enables those applications to read and write data and metadata to MatrixStore object storage as if it were AWS S3 storage. For security reasons, the S3Connect application is installed on a gateway server allowing S3 clients to connect to it whilst relaying the data sent/read to and from MatrixStore object storage.
NFS Access to MatrixStore Object Storage
NFS provides a standard means of accessing MatrixStore object storage without the need for client software.
Many graphics, finishing, and motion applications run on LINUX infrastructure and move data via the NFS protocol. MatrixStore object storage supports access to content via NFS thus ensuring existing media workflows work out of the box.
