Today Spectra Logic launched ArcticBlue, a new nearline disk storage system that delivers “Twice the Shelf Life of Competing Disk Platforms at Half the Cost.” ArcticBlue leverages the company’s BlackPearl hybrid storage architecture and Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR) disk media, creating an object storage based disk platform with maximum longevity, efficiency and cost effectiveness. Datacenter and private cloud managers can now affordably integrate a long-life nearline disk solution with online performance.
Today Spectra Logic announced Spectra Verde DPE, a new Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR)-based NAS disk platform designed to provide high-density bulk storage for reliable, high-capacity digital preservation, at costs as low as 9 cents per gigabyte raw.
Today Spectra Logic announced updates and enhancements to its BlackPearl Deep Storage Gateway that allow data to move seamlessly into deep tape storage in a new and more efficient way.
“Recently, we released our BlackPearl appliance, which is an S3 gateway to tape. It’s a really easy way to get data into a deep storage archive. Kind of interesting to take this cloud-based technology, put it into appliance and actually build a private cloud for HPC.”
Spectra Logic was named as the 2014 Storage Visions “Visionary Company in Media and Entertainment Storage” for its introduction of the Deep Simple Storage Service (DS3).
