Spectra Logic is teaming with Arcitecta for tackling the massive datasets used in life sciences. The two companies will showcase their joint solutions at the BioIT World conference this week in Boston.

Addressing the needs of the life sciences market with reliable data storage lies at the heart of the Spectra and Arcitecta relationship,” said Spectra CTO Matt Starr. “This joint solution enables customers to better manage their data and metadata by optimizing multiple storage targets, retrieving data efficiently and tracking content and resources.”

Spectra Logic’s BlackPearl Converged Storage System solves the problem of costly and complex approaches to digital preservation by combining multiple standard interfaces and storage targets into a simple and affordable solution designed for diverse workflows. BlackPearl unlocks multiple storage targets including online disk, nearline disk, deep storage tape, and even public cloud.

Arcitecta Mediaflux manages genomics data at top pharmaceutical and research organizations worldwide; and is being deployed with Spectra Logic BlackPearl at one of the world’s top universities. Mediaflux automates analysis workflows, tiers data, and automatically extracts and creates genomic metadata to search and act on billions of files — unifying life sciences data silos into a secure distributed collaboration environment across a single global namespace.

The joint solution with Spectra’s BlackPearl and Arcitecta’s Mediaflux is now shipping and available to the market.
