ASG Software Solutions today announced the certification of Object Matrix’s flagship object storage platform MatrixStorewith its leading archive platform ASG-Digital Archive(ADA), allowing customers to push the limits of their current asset handling. Together, they offer a new high-capacity archive platform that integrates seamlessly into media and application file-based workflows.
ASG and Object Matrix faced increasing requests from customers interested in connecting their favorite object storage to their archiving solution. This feedback came specifically from the media communities making daily use of large volumes of data, specifically the media and entertainment industry’s usage of very large files, or the massive numbers of small files encountered in science and research.
ASG-Digital Archive, an open archive solution for media applications, makes it fast and painless for media users to integrate object storage into their production workflows. Building on ASG’s rich history as a pioneer of integrating new, emerging storage technologies, ASG-Digital Archive leverages MatrixStore’s native APIs to deliver efficient data movement capabilities.
“Although file-based media has become standard in media and entertainment workflows, the market is still undergoing massive technology shifts,” said Armel Bile, ASG-Digital Archive product manager. “Production and post-production habits continue to evolve, while new technologies emerge and pressure on primary storage continues to rise. ASG-Digital Archive is designed to help media organizations adapt quickly to these changes and efficiently address new challenges and opportunities. This is exactly what ASG is delivering through this integration with MatrixStore, the trusted object storage platform from Object Matrix.”
“Our customers are looking for automated and integrated workflows between trusted platforms,” said Nick Pearce, Object Matrix co-founder. “The ADA solution from ASG is a powerful platform that global organizations trust to move content where it is needed, when it is needed. The integration with the MatrixStore API enables organizations to move content seamlessly from production or disaster recovery storage, to a highly secure and scalable nearline platform on which it is protected at the highest possible levels and is available to distribute on demand. We think our customers, and the wider market, will receive many benefits from the collaboration between Object Matrix and ASG.”
