A new managed cloud service built on Perifery’s Object Matrix platform and ERA infrastructure will give media companies high levels of data protection and uninterrupted access to assets.
Perifery and ERA have partnered to build a fully managed cloud service for ERA customers and users in the media and entertainment industry. Using Perifery’s Object Matrix platform on ERA infrastructure will give media companies high levels of data protection and uninterrupted access to media assets.
COEUS is ERA’s managed digital archive that, as a cloud-based system, is device-independent and secure and is continuously kept up to date over time. This environment helps broadcast companies, post-production facilities, VFX houses and media content producers who are concerned with content safety and availability. With this integration, Object Matrix forms part of the Coeus archive system, making object storage functionality available to customers through a regular interface.
“As the need increases to ensure content is secure, protected and accessible, it is important that companies have access to services that include affordable, readily available archive and backup workflows,” said Peter Watling, Senior Sales Director, EMEA, for Perifery. “ERA’s new service based on Object Matrix redefines how organizations use cloud storage, and enhances its value. The integration adds options and ease of access – without adding undue cost.”
Perifery’s Object Matrix platform is specifically designed for media workflows. Used by many of the world’s large media organizations, Object Matrix is not only very secure but also very flexible. It comes with a suite of applications including file system, asset management and analytics, and it integrates tightly into most media third-party software including Avid and Adobe. The platform makes it possible to balance content creation and preservation with ingest, logging, editing, sharing, distribution and archive.
The Perifery integration allows ERA to add cloud-based archive and back-up services with media-specific functionality to Coeus including predictable cloud workflows, metadata support and self-serve access to content from anywhere.
