Hey everyone, been extemely busy these days but hoping to come up for air soon and start with some virtual meetings.

Doing some budgeting for 2021 and have a few questions it would be great if you could answer.


1) Company Name

2) How do you protect your data center from...

       a) physical theft/damage

       b) fire or other natural disaster - fire suppression system? fireproof walls? etc

3) Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity...

       a) Replicated Data Center? YES/NO - FULL or PARTIAL?

                if PARTIAL - what parts?

                if REPLICATED - in another office, co-location or cloud?

       b) Duplicate lines to join building and/or internet connections?  Different providers?


       c) Snapshot polices on storage?

                 how many snapshots do you keep and what intervals?

       d) Regular Backups

                 to tape or replicated? if replicated - to another office, co-location or cloud?


Much appreciated for some feedback.


Thank you.

John Hickson

1) CineSys together wih Object Matrix

2a)  MatrixStore Cloud is deployed in Tier 1 and Tier 2 data centres. Cabinets are always locked and only CineSys or ObjectMatrix has access to the hardware. Site has 24/7 manned security and full 90 day CCTV recordings

2b) Fire monitoring Apollo Fire Technology, VEDSA Xtralis Fire Technology, redundant Fire suppression gas.

Power - industry leading resilience in central London benefiting from two separate 33kV supplies, from two independent grid substations.

3)  Nodes are RAID6 with dual power, system disks and networking. MatrixStore also keeps two copies at all times. Firstly in two nodes within the cluster and once replicated to another cluster so two physical copies. This allows very flexible deployments of Private Cloud (on-Prem), Hybrid Cloud (On-prem and MatrixStore Cloud) or Full Cloud (In two Seperate MatrixStore Clusters at different Data Centres).

3a)  Replicated (Data and Metadata) built into MatrixStore. Flexible options for some or all data to be replicated.

3b)  Your choice, both possible.

3c)  Versioning, multiple copies and data retention all built into MatrixStore to ensure the data is protected to your needs.

Additional Software required for true snapshotting if required - Ortana Cubix, Marquis Broadcast Project Parking or others available, however, as with all Object Storage, symbolic linking is not supported at Windows level.

3d)  Your choice. Replication built in, Option for third “cold” copy in Glacier all seamlessly integrated with built in HSM tools.

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any further questions on this option, or other options for multiple offices.
