Nearline storage launches for Object Matrix

Object Matrix has chosen IBC2012 to launch MatrixStore Quattro (pictured), a new compact nearline storage platform designed for small production facilities, on-site rushes protection and OB (outside broadcast) workflows. MatrixStore Quattro provides between 24 and 32 Terabytes of raw disk storage in four compact MatrixStore nodes. Up to four Quattro chassis can be combined to scale to 128TB of nearline storage. Each node has SSD (Solid State Drive) metadata controllers and provides the option to have one of the four nodes in MatrixStore Quattro converted to a client PC or server to combine applications and storage in the same form factor. "The Quattro provides the functionality and workflows of the enterprise MatrixStore in a cost-effective and easy to install and use solution,” said Jon Morgan, CEO of Object Matrix. “It enables you to store and use data securely wherever and however you are creating that footage.” Object Matrix will also be demonstrating enhancements in MatrixStore Server Software 3.0: improved performance with the introduction of SSD technology to the metadata handling routine and 4TB enterprise drives that provide 48TB capacity in a 2u form factor.
