MediaCloud Brings MatrixStore to South Africa
Johannesburg, South Africa, 2 August 2018 – MediaCloud Networks, a trusted partner, reseller and advocate of Object Matrix has purchased MatrixStore to offer a cloud-based object storage platform as part of its services across South Africa and beyond.
MediaCloud Networks has introduced MatrixStore, the media focused private cloud and object storage solution to the existing services delivered to its customers. By adding MatrixStore to complement existing solutions, MediaCloud Networks can offer a secure and protected cloud storage platform as a managed service, whilst utilising the fast access of its established network.
Peter Watling, Sales Manager Object Matrix, commented:
The media industry is particularly challenging, with evolving consumer expectations and technology. MediaCloud Networks, like Object Matrix, is specifically focused on the media industry. Therefore, media organisations looking for support across a number of services and workflows can benefit from expert knowledge and understanding of this industry.
MediaCloud Networks is also an Object Matrix reseller in South Africa and offers additional value to its customers with the technical expertise in workflow design, integrations, support and product knowledge that has been gained through the close partnership. Now having MatrixStore to offer as-a-service also means that it can additionally provide Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity services to existing customers using MatrixStore on-premise.
Marc Eckstein, Managing Director at MediaCloud, added:
Our customers are increasingly demanding a cloud-based storage service. The key concerns for media companies is having assets available, so they are easy to find, fast to access and simple to share; this is something MatrixStore excels in, ensuring time is spent generating revenue and not managing storage. Having the ability to offer a secure, cloud based, managed storage platform at a competitive price without the additional penalties for accessing content is a really attractive prospect for organisations, especially if they do not have the need or capacity to house the hardware. With our super fast network, access to content will seem as though it is in their rack.
