Object Matrix Helps Orange Prestations TV Lengthen Private Cloud Storage to More Than 5 Petabytes
Object Matrix has worked with Orange Prestations TV (OPTV) to further extend its private cloud storage platform. Object Matrix is represented in France by IVORY and the implementation was managed by CTM Solutions.
Faced with an ever-increasing media library, OPTV began an evaluation process to determine the best way of managing that growth. With two MatrixStore object storage clusters already in place, OPTV was keen to determine whether it should extend and optimize that existing storage, move to a cloud workflow, or look to externalize management of the archive.
“Maximizing the value of our archive means having the right technology and services in place,” says Olivier le Galloudec, Managing Director, OPTV. “However, equally important is the strong team of expert advisors, which we get thanks to the combination of Object Matrix, IVORY, and CTM Solutions. As we were already using MatrixStore and that expert support team, we knew it would be the right combination to optimize and to grow our archive.”
With complex MAM and API driven workflows, a need for high levels of content security and ensuring future proof access to its archive, OPTV recognized the value brought by the incumbent solutions providers and integrators to fulfill its current and future needs. As such, the decision was made that Object Matrix, combined with its representatives in France, IVORY, and CTM Solutions, still provided the best solution to address those needs. Orange Prestations TV has extended one of its existing MatrixStore object storage clusters by one petabyte and added a third MatrixStore cluster to its setup taking the overall footprint to in excess of 5.5 petabytes.
“OPTV has seen a massive increase in its media library over the past couple of years,” says Nick Pearce-Tomenius, Sales & Marketing Director, Object Matrix. “By increasing its existing MatrixStore storage, it can continue to scale without needing to change its infrastructure or workflows. Ultimately the investment now will save OPTV time and money and help it continue to monetise its archive.”
