“I’m a passionate advocate of the benefits that object storage technology offers to any industry,” says Morgan. “When Object Matrix was acquired by Perifery, I saw a significant opportunity for growing our state-of-the-art on-prem, cloud, and hybrid media storage solutions. Taking on this new role at Perifery will help me bring that vision to life.”
