Introducing StorCycle®: The Modern Answer to the Problem of How to Manage and Protect Expanding Data Sets

Reading time for this article .

Today marks a significant milestone in Spectra Logic’s history. That’s because we are announcing StorCycle, a new storage lifecycle management software that will enable customers to identify, migrate, protect and access their large amounts of data – easily, economically and safely – for as long as they need to do so.

Working closely with our thousands of customers and channel partners, we realized that there was an imminent problem with storing expanding repositories of data on expensive primary storage. With Spectra’s 40-year history of solving customer’s data storage problems, we decided to design, engineer and deliver a new storage lifecycle management software solution: Spectra StorCycle.

StorCycle identifies inactive data sitting on an expensive Primary Tier of storage and automatically moves it to a Perpetual Tier of storage, which can include any combination of cloud storage, object storage disk, network-attached storage (NAS) and tape. StorCycle allows organizations to reduce the overall cost of storing data by up to 70 percent.

By removing less frequently accessed data from the Primary Tier of storage and moving it to the more affordable Perpetual Tier, the software helps storage administrators minimize the size of their primary storage, shrink backup windows, reduce costs, and increase overall performance. Organizations can deploy StorCycle with Spectra storage hardware or as standalone software using existing network-attached storage or public cloud.

Outpacing traditional data management software solutions for offloading primary storage, Spectra’s new software release is a natural evolution from a company with a proven track record in solving data storage challenges.
