Spectra Federal Solutions

The Internet of Things, sensors, video surveillance, and mobile devices are creating an explosion in data growth at federal agencies. While required to store and archive a sea of endless data, federal agencies seek cost-effective storage, backup and archive solutions that provide the security and reliability necessary to protect sensitive and essential information.

Spectra federal solutions enable federal agencies to meet their continuity of operations and disaster recovery requirements by providing a broad range of disk, tape, and hybrid cloud storage solutions.

Spectra Logic’s storage solutions help federal agencies architect a highly reliable and affordable storage ecosystem. Utilizing the appropriate storage medium based on data type and age, Spectra’s federal solutions save agencies time, reduces data-loss risk and lowers storage costs

“We chose the Spectra T950 after researching competing libraries because of its high performance, density, and reasonable cost. We’ve been able to significantly improve backup speed with the highly recommended enterprise tape library.”

Reduce Risk—Archive and Protect Data

Spectra’s solutions meet the needs of any size federal agency – from users with 100TB of data, to high performance computing users with exabytes of data. Spectra solutions allow agencies to cost effectively store and archive massive amounts of valuable data, while at the same time maintaining regulatory compliance, with products that eliminate human error, ensure maximum uptime and simplify usage. With integrated encryption and other key management options, agencies control their own data security and data retention, helping to meet FISMA retention standards. Furthermore, in a world driven by information and the threats to that information, maintaining “genetic diversity” in storage is key to a secure storage strategy.

Retrieve Data with Ease—Restore Data with Reliability

Federal agencies can ensure that they have reliable access to their data at all times. Spectra offers federal agencies flexible options for continuity of operations and disaster recovery. Additionally, tape has the longest life expectancy of any archive medium, with an archival life of up to 30 years. Spectra’s encryption key management options provide users with multiple methods to securely retrieve their data.

Lower Costs - Reduce the Capital Drain of Data Storage

With data growing exponentially, government budgets are not keeping up with this rapid growth, driving requirements for higher capacities and lower storage costs. Spectra’s solutions offer innovative features that allow for scalability and make the most of an agency’s IT dollar. Engineered for optimal energy efficiency, Spectra’s disk and tape offerings consume less power than comparable solutions. Users can gain up to a 50 percent improvement in data center floor space utilization with the efficient design of Spectra’s tape libraries. Relative to the competition, the Spectra T950 Tape Library uses up to 60% less power, supported by an efficient power distribution system and a unique TeraPack architecture, which helps federal agencies contain or reduce annual power consumption.


Regardless of the requirements, budgets and data accessibility needs of the agency, Spectra’s hybrid storage ecosystem provides a comprehensive solution – through tape, disk, private or public cloud, or any combination of these storage mediums. Spectra works with customers to help them rethink their approach to storage:

  • Massive Amounts of Data – using cloud protocols to simplify application development, access to, and management of massive amounts of data – both near and long-term
  • Hybrid Cloud – Deploying hybrid cloud efficiently
  • Genetic Diversity – Using the right mix of media to make smart tradeoffs between speed of access and overall cost of storage
  • Digital Preservation – Designing in redundancy through a standard workflow that includes a mix of media and offsite storage
