Korea’s Institute for Basic Science advances the frontiers of research and knowledge with Spectra Digital Archive
The institute must select world-class infrastructure that meets global standards. Our Spectra Digital Archive helps us preserve research data that is vital to increasing Korea’s national basic science capacity. This will ensure the creation of new knowledge that will help with significant societal transformations.

Korea’s Institute for Basic Science implemented Spectra Digital Archive as a high-capacity archive solution that will scale to meet their growing data volumes. The Spectra Digital Archive solution includes Spectra StorCycle enterprise software for digital preservation, a Spectra BlackPearl Nearline Gateway and a Spectra T950 Tape Library with LTO-8 tape drives. Per the institute’s storage policies, StorCycle scans data in their primary Lustre file system and archives data daily to BlackPearl Nearline Gateway, which in turn writes two copies of the data to tape. The Spectra tape library complements the organization’s existing primary storage and provides a low-cost, scalable archive. In addition, StorCycle provides familiar access and recovery of single files or entire data sets.
