Orange Take a 2nd Petabyte of MatrixStore Object Storage to implement Business Continuity Strategies
Cardiff, 14th November 2016. Object Matrix, the leading media asset governance and object storage solution supplier to the media and entertainment industries, today announced that Paris-based Orange has ordered a second petabyte of MatrixStore object storage for Orange Prestations TV (OPTV is an Orange subsidiary).
OPTV is responsible for handling acquisitions and archiving of audio-visual content for Broadcast (OCS channels and OCS Go) and Orange VOD services (more than 10.000 programs available as pay-per-view or for download).
Historically OPTV operations were based on LTO technology. In 2015 the company decided to migrate the existing petabyte away from LTO to a more secure and scalable object storage architecture using commodity disk.
MatrixStore object storage technology, from Object Matrix, was chosen at the time to perform the migration and the integration was entrusted to Paris-based CTM Solutions (who can be met at the SATIS Expo E23 stand).
OPTV is now implementing a business continuity strategy to strengthen the security of its media storage platform and to enhance the availability of the content. A second MatrixStore cluster will be hosted in a remote data centre to enable automatic asynchronous replication of their assets. Object Matrix offers bi-directional replication of assets as a standard feature within MatrixStore.
Object Matrix will be present at the SATIS Expo in Paris on the IVORY stand D23. Appointments with sales and technical teams can be booked by contacting Object Matrix: firstname.lastname@example.org or +44 (0) 2920 382308.
