BlackPearl is a multi-purpose hybrid storage platform that easily and cost effectively scales up as object and file volumes grow; adapts as operational requirements change; and enables easy synchronization of data between on-prem and cloud storage. The object-based BlackPearl, which has offered capacity NAS and Spectra DS3 to tape for over 10 years, was recently expanded to include a native S3 interface providing local on-premises S3-standard object storage using the same economical scale-up architecture. BlackPearl S3 enables bi-directional synchronization of data between public cloud and on-premises storage.

Ransomware has been steadily on the rise and is increasingly making headlines in the news. Cases such as the Colonial Pipeline, Exagrid, and meat processing giant JBS are cropping up left and right. Spectra Logic even became the target of ransomware. Spectra’s successful defense against its attack has led to multiple articles, white papers, and webinars being produced to spread the word on how to withstand an attack and say ‘no’ to paying a ransom. It also led to Spectra’s development of even more robust storage solutions to help others avoid such a situation. That storage approach is at the heart of this white paper.

If you manage data in a hybrid cloud or multi-cloud storage environment, then you know how powerful it is to leverage the functionalities of cloud-integrated data management and storage. Hybrid cloud environments provide huge benefits to IT professionals, but not without the challenges of managing and securing data across multiple clouds or multiple sites (including on-premises). Even within cloud-only environments, different public clouds provide access to different operational benefits, be it a wider range of applications, greater workload compatibilities or superior AI capabilities. Many IT teams struggle with synchronization of data between public and private clouds, cloud vendor lock-in and managing cloud costs.
