Object Matrix develops MatrixStore on-premises appliances, hybrid solutions, and cloud storage offerings that enable broadcasters and service providers to securely manage content.

Object Matrix customers include NBC Universal, Warner Bros. Discovery, MSG-N, ATP Media, BT, and the BBC.

DataCore said that acquiring Object Matrix accelerates the company’s DataCore.NEXT to enhance the customer’s journey from core to the edge and cloud.

The acquisition of Object Matrix follows DataCore’s acquisitions of Caringo in January 2021 and MayaStor in November 2021, providing Caringo’s Swarm Object Storage software and DataCore Bolt, developed through the MayaStor acquisition, which is a Kubernetes storage and data services platform for containerized applications.

“Gartner predicts that more than 50% of enterprise-managed data will be created and processed at the edge by 2025. We’re excited to expand our Perifery portfolio with innovative solutions that will enable us to lead in edge markets. The Object Matrix product line perfectly complements our world-class solution portfolio, increasing reliability and agility for customers in the fast-growing media and entertainment edge market. Working with the Object Matrix team, we look forward to bringing industry-leading innovation, and providing continued technology and customer support,” said Abhijit Dey, general manager of DataCore’s Perifery business.

“This announcement signifies an exciting new stage for Object Matrix, allowing us to extend our reach and product ambitions within DataCore while continuing to develop state-of-the-art on prem, cloud, and hybrid media storage solutions. By leveraging DataCore’s experienced leadership team, worldwide distribution — consisting of over 400 channel partners and more than 10,000 global customers — combined with world-class engineering, sales, and marketing, we are in an excellent position,” said Jonathan Morgan, CEO of Object Matrix.
