Object Matrix, the leading provider of integrated object storage to the media and entertainment industries, today announced a technology partnership with Spectra Logic, the deep storage experts.
Object Matrix is integrating its MatrixStore object storage platform with Spectra Logic’s Spectra® BlackPearl® Deep Storage Gateway using the BlackPearl Software Developer Kit (SDK). BlackPearl provides a single interface to tape and disk using cloud protocols. Object Matrix will integrate BlackPearl into its move2 application, which provides HSM functionality between MatrixStore and 3rd party storage solutions
“Working with Spectra Logic’s BlackPearl enables us to deliver an integrated and automated archive solution that combines the benefits of disk and LTO archive media. Adding BlackPearl to the move2 ecosystem will provide our customers with added choice and flexibility when implementing archive strategies,” stated Nick Pearce, co-founder, Object Matrix.
MatrixStore object storage is deployed globally as a centralised nearline hub handling multiple workflows and satisfying numerous business requirements. The combination of intelligent nearline storage from Object Matrix with scalable LTO technology, from Spectra Logic, provides organisations with the flexibility to easily move content through tiers of storage with very little management overhead.
“Customers employing a combination of Spectra’s BlackPearl Deep Storage Gateway with Object Matrix, are able to leverage various storage tiers, such as tape, disk, on premise or public cloud, using cloud protocols,” said Matt Starr, CTO, Spectra Logic. “Both products utilize object storage and are built to meet the needs of various workflows and budgets, while providing the ability to scale and accommodate future growth.”
