Video: Spectra Logic Changes Storage Economics with ArcticBlue at SC15

Matt Starr from Spectra Logic describes the company’s new ArcticBlue nearline disk storage system. “If you think about a tape subsystem, it’s probably the best cost footprint, density footprint that you can get. ArticBlue brings in kind of the benefits of tape from a cost perspective, but the speed and performance of a disk subsystem. Ten cents a gig versus seven cents a gig, three cents difference. You may want to deploy a little bit of ArcticBlue in your archive when you’re putting it behind BlackPearl as opposed to just an all tape archive.”

FujiFilm Qualifies Next-Gen LTO-7 Cartridge

Last week at SC15, Fujifilm announced that its next-generation LTO Ultrium 7 data cartridge has been qualified by the LTO technology provider companies for commercial production and is available immediately. FUJIFILM LTO Ultrium 7 has a compressed storage capacity of 15.0TB with a transfer rate of 750MB/sec assuming 2.5:1 compression ratio. This capacity achievement represents a 2.4X increase over the current LTO-6 generation.

Spectra Logic to Offer LTO-7 Technology

Today Spectra Logic announced it is now taking orders for Spectra tape libraries configured with Linear Tape-Open Generation 7 (LTO-7) technology. The combination of LTO-7, the industry-standard for tape technology, and Spectra tape libraries will result in the best storage density available per dollar.
