Joint solution enables users to share, store and access content with greater visibility and efficiency.
BRACKNELL, U.K. — 30 July 2019— Spectra Logic today announced that TransMedia Dynamics (TMD) has completed client certification of its Mediaflex-UMS Content Supply Chain platform with Spectra’s BlackPearl® Converged Storage System. The joint solution is integrated via the Spectra® BlackPearl RioBroker interface, BlackPearl’s new software front-end. Together, BlackPearl and Mediaflex-UMS allow users in media and entertainment, audiovisual, governmental and legislative sectors, to store and manage data on object storage disk, tape and cloud using unified content management provided by TMD. The joint solution provides users with the ability to reduce overall data management time, cost and complexities as well as deliver enhanced content discoverability and workflow orchestration across the entire supply chain.
Spectra’s BlackPearl Converged Storage System solves the problem of costly and complex approaches to data management and preservation by combining interfaces and storage targets into a system designed for multiple workflows with predictable costs. Mediaflex-UMS supports comprehensive workflow orchestration and automation, using AI to enhance the user experience for collaboration and content monetisation across diverse sites and business systems.
BlackPearl RioBroker, a highly available clustered system, offloads the data transfer job from the application, bringing greater performance, parallelism, scalability, ease of implementation and consistency to the entire platform. BlackPearl RioBroker, coupled with Mediaflex-UMS, also provides Partial File Recall and additional File Transfer Protocols, such as FTP and S3, to deliver content to and from BlackPearl.
“BlackPearl with Mediaflex-UMS is an ideal fit for data-intensive applications, particularly for customers in media and entertainment, audiovisual and government,” said Ben Cousens, TMD product manager. “We chose to partner with Spectra Logic due to BlackPearl’s modern approach to data management and rich feature set which translates into significant time and money savings for customers.”
“TMD’s solution is a well-respected leader in these markets,” said Matt Starr, CTO, Spectra Logic. “When combined with Spectra BlackPearl, the joint solution dramatically simplifies large-scale content management and storage for our mutual customers.”
