DataCore Software announced it has acquired Object Matrix, the award-winning object storage pioneer and media archive specialist. Object Matrix’s best-of-breed appliances and cloud offerings will become part of the DataCore Perifery portfolio that specializes in delivering end-to-end, application-centric solutions for edge and high-growth markets, including media and entertainment. This acquisition reinforces the Perifery line of edge devices and solutions, while adding unparalleled talent and expertise to the Perifery team.
Object Matrix develops MatrixStore on-premises appliances, hybrid solutions, and cloud storage offerings that enable broadcasters and service providers to securely manage content at every stage of the media lifecycle, offering significant operational and financial benefits. Object Matrix customers include NBC Universal, Warner Bros. Discovery, MSG-N, ATP Media, BT, and the BBC. Object Matrix customers will benefit from the innovative capabilities of DataCore’s well-established, worldwide presence and award-winning support.
Acquiring Object Matrix accelerates the DataCore.NEXT vision to enhance the customer’s journey from core to the edge and cloud. By strategically aligning the Perifery and Object Matrix solution offerings, DataCore is redefining how storage resources are best utilized to ensure optimal results and the lowest cost for customers, turning technology barriers into breakthroughs.
The acquisition of Object Matrix kicks off an exciting year for DataCore following two strategic acquisitions of Caringo in January 2021 and MayaStor in November 2021. Caringo’s Swarm Object Storage software currently serves hundreds of customers in over 25 countries, growing in excess of 35% in 2022. DataCore Bolt, developed through the MayaStor acquisition, is a Kubernetes storage and data services platform for containerized applications. MayaStor is approaching 1M downloads a year and has seen over 50% user growth since 2021
