Object Matrix and Storage Made Easy Partner to Empower Media And Entertainment Asset Management Workflow Efficiencies

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, said: “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.”

Storage Made Easy’s Enterprise File Fabric™ integrates file and object data into one single platform through a unified file system that works with on-premises and on-cloud data storage assets.
End users, whether local or remote, are able to access the unified file system using web scale protocols and clients that bridge desktop and cloud, but which provide familiar workflows to end users.

Cloud-like economics are provided across a company’s entire storage portfolio, unlocking the benefits and cost-efficiency of its data assets whilst providing strict controls and governance for legislative compliance, such as GDPR and CCPA, and addressing security concerns such as ransomware attacks.
The platform’s unique File Transfer acceleration technology M-Stream®, speeds up the transfer of files from desktop to storage, storage to desktop or even public cloud to public cloud, enhancing user productivity and providing ROI on latency sensitive workflows.

The company is backed by Moore Strategic Ventures, LLC, the private investment vehicle of Louis M. Bacon, in addition to other private shareholders including London-based entrepreneurs who previously successfully exited their businesses to larger industry peers.
