BOULDER, Colo.—June 27, 2013—Spectra Logic, celebrating more than 30 years of data storage innovation, today announced it was honored with the Storage Innovators Award at the 2013 UK Storage Awards (‘The Storries’).

Now in its tenth year, the Storage Awards are voted on by the readers of Storage Magazine and recognize the outstanding products, services and people in the storage industry. Spectra Logic secured the prestigious award by outpacing twelve other companies, including IBM, Veeam and Symantec in the innovation category.  More than 50,000 votes were cast in the build-up to the awards ceremony at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London.

“Spectra Logic is gratified to be recognized by its customers and the readers of Storage Magazine for its leadership in innovation. Bringing advanced storage technologies to customers and working closely with them to solve long-term data retention challenges are at the heart of what we do – and we’ll be unveiling more innovative storage solutions later this year,” said Molly Rector, Spectra Logic’s executive vice president of product management and worldwide marketing. “Tape technologies have a pivotal role to play as organizations retain increasing volumes of data and require the ability to store it reliably, cost effectively and in a way that is easily accessible now and in the future.”

Over the past year, Spectra Logic announced the availability of 10GbE iSCSI connectivity to tape, the commencement of LTO-6 shipments and the installation of a 380 PBs near-line tape archive for NCSA's Blue Waters supercomputing system, one of the largest and most powerful supercomputers in the world. The company also installed more than a half an Exabyte of tape storage capacity in the first half of FY2013.
