Spectra BlueScale

BlueScale®, the common software interface for all Spectra tape libraries, brings enterprise command and control features unparalleled in the tape market. Available through the library’s on-board LCD color touchscreen and remote web access with a web browser, BlueScale is an easy-to-navigate interface built into Spectra libraries that enables library features to work easily, flexibility and safely with your data.

A single BlueScale user interface manages an entire tape library without any external servers or software. BlueScale manages your library, configurations, partitions, encryption keys and all library and media health monitoring. By consolidating all management functions in a single interface, you save time managing the library and lower costs by eliminating the need for additional resources.

Unparalleled Operator Efficiency
The BlueScale management interface offers you unparalleled operator efficiency, giving you the ability to manage all library features including:

While alternative solutions typically require a variety of resources to manage a single tape library, a single BlueScale user interface manages an entire library without any external servers, reducing operational complexity. This consolidated approach also eliminates costs associated with personnel, additional equipment, software license charges and increased power and cooling requirements of extra hardware. You can easily upgrade your library using BlueScale—just enter an activation key to enable more capacity. The BlueScale software itself is also continually improved. Software updates are easy to install and free to customers with an active SpectraGuard service contract.

Enhanced Support
For rapid and efficient diagnosis, BlueScale AutoSupport provides a “phone home” function informing the Spectra Logic SpectraGuard Support Team of problems.
