Today Spectra Logic rolled out a suite of technologies for exascale storage including “the world’s highest capacity storage system.”

Spectra Logic is introducing the world’s highest capacity storage system, a high capacity T-Finity enterprise tape library capable of storing more than 3.6 exabytes of data. Powered by Spectra’s BlueScale 12 software management, the Spectra T-Finity provides the highest capacity single library and the highest capacity library complex. A single T-Finity library will now expand to 40 frames for a capacity of up to 50,000 tape cartridges. In a library complex, up to eight libraries can be clustered using Spectra’s skyway technology for a capacity of up to 400,000 tape cartridges.

Spectra also announced enhancements to its unified management software called BlueScale 12 and new technology called CarbideClean, which extends the life of tape media and drives by using a precision carbide blade to pre-clean media prior to shipment to customers for initial use.

There’s a number of nifty performance and reliability enhancements listed in the announcement, which you can read about in the Full Story. Spectra is also hosting Webinar to cover the details of its new products and enhancements on Wednesday, November 2 at 10:00 am MDT. Register now.
