MatrixStore Digital Preservation Platform Integrates With Front Porch Digital's LYNXSM Cloud CSM System

Front Porch Digital has announced that U.K.-based preservation software company Object Matrix has verified that its MatrixStore digital preservation platform integrates with Front Porch Digital's LYNXSM cloud CSM system, and will begin promoting the combination to its customers. The combined solution would allow Object Matrix customers to optimize the use of their storage by relying on MatrixStore as a local repository and LYNX for offsite deep archiving and disaster recovery.
"The Object Matrix team has a long heritage of digital preservation in a number of industries, but since 2009 has focused solely on the media and entertainment industry," said Nick Pearce, sales and marketing director and co-founder of Object Matrix. "Ensuring our product fits into a given customer's environment requires strong partnerships like the one we have with Front Porch Digital. We have wanted to work with Front Porch Digital for quite some time because they have a wealth of history and expertise in the media and entertainment market that will benefit our broadcast and postproduction customers."
The compatibility between MatrixStore and LYNX means that customers could easily integrate the two products to create new workflows and automate processes that they currently do manually. For example, based on a watch folder users would create on the MatrixStore nearline storage platform, LYNX would automatically move content to deeper, offsite storage.
"Object Matrix has long been well-respected in the field of digital data preservation, which made them a very attractive partner for us," said Rino Petricola, senior vice president and general manager at Front Porch Digital. "This partnership extends our market reach and helps us position LYNX to a wider range of customers through a company that shares our passion for ensuring the longevity of their content."
LYNX is the industry's first enterprise-scale cloud implementation of CSM. It delivers adaptable, on-demand scalability; reduces capital and operational costs; and revolutionizes the way media organizations manage assets. LYNX leverages the latest cloud and Web technologies to provide a range of networked and distributed solutions.
