BOULDER, Colo. – June 27, 2019– Spectra Logic announced today that it has been named Storage Magazine’s “Object Storage Vendor of the Year” at its annual awards ceremony held in London this month. Recognizing outstanding companies, products and services in the global IT industry for 16 years, the coveted ‘Storries Awards’ honor organizations and people who exemplify excellence and drive advancements in multiple areas of the data storage industry. Winners are selected by open vote.
“We’re delighted to be recognized for excellence when it comes to our object storage offerings,” said David Feller, vice president of product management for Spectra Logic. “We believe this accolade validates what we hear from customers and the market in general as our BlackPearl object storage platform gains even more traction in the industry.”
Spectra’s BlackPearl® is an object storage platform that enables data lifecycle management which eliminates the need for expensive legacy middleware. The Spectra BlackPearl Converged Storage System helps consolidate islands of storage, creating efficient workflows, while allowing data to be shared amongst multiple applications. BlackPearl incorporates feature-rich software within a purpose-built hardware platform that facilitates the management of data to multiple storage targets, including online disk, nearline disk, tape, remote sites and public cloud.
The Spectra BlackPearl platform also includes BlackPearl Object Storage Disk, which delivers long-term disk-only storage for the price of tape. Powered by Spectra’s BlackPearl Converged Storage System, BlackPearl Object Storage Disk provides organizations with enterprise-grade object-based disk storage that scales in capacity and performance with a very low total cost of ownership (TCO).
Earlier this year, Spectra announced that it had enhanced its popular BlackPearl platform with the addition of Spectra® RioBroker version 1.01. Spectra RioBroker acts as a data mover to speed file transfers, streamline workflows and scale out BlackPearl in both performance and capacity to accommodate growing amounts of digital assets. As a software front-end to Spectra’s BlackPearl, Spectra RioBroker offloads the data transfer job from the application to the Spectra RioBroker system.
