Spectra Logic firmly believes that collaboration and partnership are a great source of opportunity and improvement in business. In fact, Spectra’s business development team works closely with customers and ecosystem and channel partners alike to plan, develop and deliver the company’s solutions. Spectra is considered a trusted-advisor to many of the world’s key data storage users and has become a true partner to its customers – accommodating requests spanning from new code creation to feature enhancements.
In that vein, Spectra has published several open-source software projects in public repositories to share code with the data storage community. The company’s platform of choice to make such developments available is GitHub, a web-based hosting service used by over 36 million developers worldwide and more than 2.1 million businesses and organizations. For example, software like Spectra’s Eon Browser, a free open-source interface to move files between local storage and the Spectra® BlackPearl® Converged Storage System, has been placed in a publicly accessible repository on GitHub so anyone can download it, see the source code, and submit suggested enhancements. As it currently stands, Spectra has contributed over 37 repositories to GitHub, all of which are licensed to permit modifications and redistribution of its source code.
