Cardiff, Wales, 22nd May 2019
Computer Weekly recently published an excellent article about Object Matrix and one of our longest standing customers, Gorilla Post Production.
Cardiff-based Gorilla Post Production has built up a very successful business with customers that include Netflix and Amazon, with around 1PB of Object Matrix object storage as its nearline repository and add-ons such as the ability to provide web access to content for customers.
Some great quotes from the piece:
“Hand on heart, I know we don’t have to worry about it. If Netflix is in town with content worth millions of dollars per episode, then they know their stuff is not on just some commodity storage, but that we have support and auditability.”
“The main thing is I know we are able to monetise the cost of storage, that I can sell it as safe, split-site storage and with other products such as the Vision service.”
Video production company Gorilla is based in Cardiff Bay and employs about 60 full-time staff plus numerous freelancers, including in its special effects and animation subsidiaries.
It is heavily invested in TV post-production, which includes sound and image editing, special effects and delivery of media to broadcasters.
Gorilla uses object storage as ingest, nearline and disaster recovery storage in multiple creative workflows.
