Efficient data tiering for media data with PoINT Storage Manager and MatrixStore

Object Matrix + PoINT Software & Systems

The new partnership between PoINT Software & Systems and Object Matrix offers new possibilities in particular for media companies for the efficient management of their storage capacities. PoINT Storage Manager automatically tiers inactive data to MatrixStore, which is the object storage solution especially for the media industry. For the user, the access to the archive remains fast and transparent.

Jonathan Morgan, CEO, Object Matrix, says: “Integrating with PoINT Storage Manager gives our users greater control over their entire archive, enabling files to be archived and tiered efficiently. Ultimately, this means they can easily optimize storage resources and maximize the cost efficiencies that come with storing more content in MatrixStore.”

With the new PoINT Data Replicator PoINT Software & Systems responds to the growing popularity of object storage systems and the related questions of data protection. The "File-to-Object" function of the software solution enables the replication of files stored in file systems to a cloud/object storage. The "S3-to-S3 Object Replication" ensures data protection in the context of hybrid or multi cloud approaches by replicating S3 objects including metadata between any S3-capable source and target buckets.

Webinar: „Tape Integrated Object Storage as an Active Archive”

PoINT joined the Active Archive Alliance in June 2020. Together with Shawn Brume (IBM) and Rich Gadomsky (FUJIFILM), Thomas Thalmann explains in this webinar how tape libraries can be integrated as object storage into the storage infrastructure, for the purpose of active archiving. You can view the webinar “Tape-Integrated Object Storage as an Active Archive” here on the Active Archive Alliance website.
