Data Archiving is an essential part of the data storage workflow. That’s because rarely accessed data still needs a place to live. Without a proper archiving solution, this inactive data sits on high-cost, primary storage even though it’s not being accessed or changed. Moving data to a more affordable archive tier frees up expensive but valuable primary storage for instant access to mission-critical data.
Spectra’s easy-to-manage archive solutions, including storage lifecycle management software, low-cost tape, disk, and object storage systems make archiving easy and affordable. For the Media & Entertainment and High Performance Computing industries, active archiving techniques and software are being used to digitally preserve their assets and data. Smart archiving has become a significant part of an IT department’s mission. With Spectra’s broad range of archive solutions, organizations can protect all tiers of their data as well as their IT budgets.
StorCycle® – Storage Lifecycle Management Software
Spectra’s StorCycle is an easy, affordable and efficient solution built specifically to identify inactive data that consumes expensive primary storage capacity. It then migrates identified data to a more affordable protected tier of storage – which can be cloud, disk, tape or any combination thereof – called the “Perpetual Storage Tier.” The Perpetual Storage Tier, which is fully accessible to users, holds inactive data which is tracked, protected and available at a future time if needed. This tier can also be used for data distribution, backup, archive, disaster recovery and more.
