(Cardiff, United Kingdom--March 22, 2013) Object Matrix, developer of nearline archive systems today announces that it has introduced a new Samba interface to the suite of applications and protocols for accessing data from the trusted nearline storage platform MatrixStore.
Following on from the introduction of 10 gigabit interfaces last month Object Matrix has introduced the Samba interface to provide access to content from any application that has access to the corporate network in their organization. One of the most important aspects of the new release is that ability to offer growing file support to the solution, functionality much desired by Object Matrix customers. Digital preservation platforms are not typically known for speed, resilience and flexibility but the MatrixStore nearline platform is offering just that.
Jon Morgan, CEO of Object Matrix said, “MatrixStore delivers on three core philosophies: the highest levels of reliable asset storage, making secure management of large amounts of assets incredibly simple, and providing proven interfaces into the rest of the Creative workflow. Providing a Samba interface is a key extension to the ways that MatrixStore can be integrated into workflows.”
Object Matrix also announces the following enhancements to its client interfaces:
· Automated workflows for seamlessly sending content from the nearline platform to LTO storage. Based on policies and business rules this automation support includes the ability for applications integrated with the MatrixStore API to check and update the status of clips no matter if they are available on disk or tape.
· Object Matrix is opening up its lesser known Management API which has been requested by integrators, Object Matrix partners and more importantly customers who have their own in-house management tools. This will allow 3rd party applications to create MatrixStore vaults and users whilst also providing access to monitoring, statistical and audit information.
· Object Matrix’s archive plug-in InterConnect, developed to work with Avid Interplay and used by broadcasters across Europe, is being enhanced to take full advantage of the automated move to tape option described above.
Object Matrix will be present at the NAB Expo on Stand SL5621 from 7th April of February. Appointments with sales and technical teams can be booked by contacting Object Matrix: firstname.lastname@example.org.
