Object Matrix, SME Announce Partnership
Object Matrix and SME have announced a partnership. The combination of MatrixStore, the object storage solution for the media industry, with SME’s Enterprise File Fabric provides a media-friendly and user-friendly federated storage platform through which users can quickly find, edit, and transfer assets to and from MatrixStore, legacy file systems and public cloud storage and securely share with external partners.
MatrixStore object storage platform is built on mature, feature-rich, and future-proof object-based storage technology. It delivers operational efficiencies, full digital content governance, and multiple media-based workflows.
The Enterprise File Fabric data management platform provides file services on top of object and presents a single pane-of-glass namespace across MatrixStore and other on-premises and cloud storage irrespective of whether they are file or object based. Users can easily access media and other assets stored in any location as well as quickly transfer data between them.
The File Fabric’s accelerated file transfer feature, M-Stream®, and other media-aware features that include web based video previewing / scrubbing with ProRes and MXF support, automated or one-click transcoding, and AI integrated content transcription can enable media organizations to unlock more value from their global media portfolio.
Jim Liddle, CEO, SME commented: “The combination of a media focused object storage with a media focused collaboration platform such as the File Fabric presents a tremendous opportunity for media organizations to not only gain workflow efficiencies but to drastically increase their return on investment through the use of the combined products.”
Jonathan Morgan, CEO, Object Matrix, commented: “MatrixStore Cloud’s S3 compatible interface has enabled further integration with File Fabric, combined with the media management and video preview capabilities of Object Matrix’s web-based application, Vision, provides a superior media experience.”
