The Environment and Use for Deep Storage: Part II

By: Matt Starr

In my previous blog I introduced BlackPearl, a new gateway to object storage for tape, and the DS3 interface, based on Amazon’s S3, that make it possible. Today I want to focus on use cases for BlackPearl.

There are two primary use cases that would compel an organization to pursue a deep storage solution like BlackPearl. The first is found in organizations managing exceptionally large data archives. Media & Entertainment organizations are an obvious fit. These companies store massive amounts of data representing movies, TV shows, sporting events, training videos, TV evangelism broadcasts, etc. Another group that falls into this “archive need” category is research facilities. These vary anywhere from universities, to medical groups, to genomic studies, to weather centers, etc. Read More
