Object Matrix has announced its roadmap for enhancing the API integration between MatrixStore and two Amazon Web Services (AWS) solutions: Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon Glacier.
MatrixStore is a media-focused hybrid cloud object storage solution. The API integration with Amazon S3 allows for object storage, while the API integration with Amazon Glacier allows for long-term archiving. All assets can be accessed instantly from MatrixStore Vision, regardless of where they are located.
Assets can be sent to Amazon S3 either manually or using automated rules and workflows. When archiving to Amazon Glacier, MatrixStore will move items to Amazon S3 in order to push them to Amazon Glacier.
The next version, which will be demonstrated at NAB Show 2019 in Las Vegas, features a number of important updates aimed at ensuring a seamless hybrid workflow between the different storages. This includes the ability to perform bulk, expedited, or standard restore from Amazon Glacier. Partial restore from Amazon S3 and Amazon Glacier means users can keep the proxy version local in order to select which part of the high-resolution version in the cloud to restore. This saves from having to download the entire high-res version.
Users will also be able to archive with a Metadata Sidecar File to ensure the associated metadata remains intact. Unique GUI indicators will display when an asset is on-premises, in Amazon S3 or in Amazon Glacier giving users a clear overview of where items are located.
