New Vail features accelerate performance for standard S3 and on-premises glacier-like* storage, and improve ransomware resiliency by delivering support for AWS Object Lock in the same manner as AWS

BOULDER, Colo. – June 14, 2022 – Spectra Logic, a global leader in data management and data storage solutions, today announced several enhancements to Spectra Vail®, a multi-cloud data management software, that further enriches Vail’s ability to combine any storage into a single global namespace — delivering universal access and placement of data across multi-site and multi-cloud storage no matter where the data resides. Spectra Vail centralizes data management across on-premises and multi-cloud architectures, simplifying the access, sharing, usage and protection of data.

Delivering policy-based data orchestration, Vail streamlines workflows and reduces overall costs and complexities for organizations that want to leverage the power of the cloud. With Vail and Vail-enabled BlackPearl® S3, organizations can take full advantage of cloud services — no matter where data is created or located, whether in the cloud or on-premises.

New Vail Enhancements Provide:

  • The industry’s only fully qualified on-premises glacier-like* solution that enables any software with an S3 interface to have direct access to local tape or nearline object storage with the use of S3 glacier-like commands that mimic AWS
  • Simple S3 disk and S3 glacier tape to modernize data protection and backup applications
  • Flexible implementation of either a global cloud-based object database for universal access or a local on-premises object database for optimized performance
  • Support for AWS Object Lock using on-premises storage targets to protect data against ransomware and malicious activity
  • Direct integration of any cloud services, including artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML), with on-premises data using intelligent object synchronization
  • Scheduled and instant data placement and orchestration using lifecycle rules and staging interfaces
  • Global object placement and visibility to optimize the performance, economics and location of data

“Today’s data-driven organizations are generating, sharing, and protecting petabytes of data both locally and in the cloud to solve some of the world’s biggest challenges,” said David Feller, Spectra Logic vice president of product management and solutions engineering. “Vail elegantly manages data globally, providing universal access and data placement while offering a seamless connection to multiple sites and clouds. Organizations can focus on the value and usage of data while still meeting corporate cloud-first directives and lowering total cost of ownership.”

Benefits of Vail Software:

  • Unifies on-premises and cloud storage into a single global namespace
  • Automates data placement to the tier of storage that matches the value of the data
  • Provides global search and access to data, no matter where the data resides
  • Eliminates vendor lock-in by facilitating the movement of data across different cloud providers
  • Unlocks access to any cloud service from any provider using a single standard S3 interface
  • Eliminates data sovereignty concerns by placing data within the required cloud region
