Spectra Logic and Wasabi:

Modern Data Management Solutions for a Multi-Cloud World

Distributed Multi-Cloud and Hybrid-Cloud Data Management with Spectra Vail® and Wasabi

The growth of unstructured data has spread across storage formats: on-premises hardware, LTO tape and the public cloud. Data is the lifeblood of modern organizations, and they must track and manage this data to continue to extract value from it. Spectra Vail® is a breakthrough cloud data management software solution for the multi-cloud world. Vail unifies data storage, allowing organizations to leverage on-premises applications and native cloud services, no matter where the data is created or stored. Vail presents both on-premises and cloud-based storage options within the data lifecycle policies. Copies can be made immediately or later, in any location, to any storage target or medium, and presented to the user as one simple storage system that reacts to their immediate needs.

Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage Delivers Breakthrough Efficiencies and Performance

Wasabi is the hot cloud storage company delivering low-cost, fast, and reliable cloud storage on-demand. Wasabi’s solution is 80% less expensive and is faster than first-generation cloud vendors. Wasabi hot cloud storage is designed with eleven nines (99.999999999%) of object durability and data immutability that guarantees stored objects cannot be deleted or modified by anyone. Not only is Wasabi 80% less expensive to store data than traditional cloud providers, but there are also no fees for egress or API requests. Wasabi keeps all data “hot” so it can be accessed in milliseconds. All Spectra and Wasabi customers can treat their data as hot data, so they can shorten upload windows and quickly access their data for faster restore times.

Key Features

  • Configurable policy engine across multiple clouds and sites
    Single global namespace–across multi-cloud and mutli-site environments
  • Bi-directional data synchro-nization across clouds and on-premises
  • Data accessibility independent of data’s physical location

Master the Hybrid Cloud with Wasabi and Spectra Vail

Vail enables organizations to extend their data center into the public cloud and unifies on-premises and cloud storage into a single namespace. Using Wasabi as a customer’s public cloud destination gives customers the flexibility to access their data from anywhere. The data is available from one or multiple locations, allowing on-premises and cloud applications to use the same data without negatively impacting performance.


  • Unify storage across on-premises and cloud (cloud, VM, on-premises)
  • Support multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud workflows
  • Secure, central cloud repository for long-term preservation and disaster recovery
  • Reduce cloud storage cost and complexity

Wasabi and Spectra Vail Environment

Vail’s data lifecycle management capabilities make it easy to set up robust policies to ensure data is always stored economically and efficiently. Wasabi’s low per-TB price point also makes it ideal as an active archive destination. For prices comparable to that of cold storage, Wasabi gives Spectra users the freedom to recall their archive data from the cloud quickly and at no additional cost.

Automatic Archive of Cold Data to a Hybrid Cloud Solution​

The term “Hybrid Cloud” is widely misused. When it comes to storage, hybrid cloud refers to getting the most out of on-premises (on-prem) storage and cloud storage. It’s more than simply having storage in both places. True hybrid cloud requires modern Storage Lifecycle Management. This means offering a single view of storage – be it on-prem or in the cloud – and ensuring that the right data is in the right place at the right time, helping to reduce storage costs and make data easier to find. StorCycle® and Wasabi combine to deliver on the promise of low cost, high availability, hybrid cloud storage for all organizations, regardless of the workflow they’re after.

Solution Benefits

With StorCycle & Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage, organizations can:

  • Reduce storage costs by up to 70%
  • Eliminate egress charges for on-premise or cloud restores
  • Minimize technical staff needed to manage storage
  • Reduce primary storage capacity by migrating inactive data
  • Maintain a consistent and familiar access to all migrated assets
  • Obtain perfect storage workflows for backup, archive, content delivery, media production collaboration, and more

Eliminate Storage Silos

StorCycle software identifies cold data on primary storage and transparently moves it to the Wasabi Cloud or the Perpetual Storage Tier for greater cost savings while leaving HTML links for easy user restoration – users know where their data is and how to access it. Wasabi Cloud Storage allows IT managers to know the exact cost of cloud storage by eliminating egress and API fees. Users are encouraged to access their data whenever it’s needed without affecting IT budgets.

Spectra Logic’s StorCycle and Wasabi’s Hot Cloud Storage Deliver True Hybrid Cloud Storage

Spectra Logic’s StorCycle
Spectra’s StorCycle storage lifecycle management software is an easy, affordable and efficient solution built specifically to identify inactive data that consumes expensive primary storage capacity. It then migrates identified data to a more affordable tier of storage, be it a Perpetual Tier on-prem (NAS or Tape), off-prem (Cloud or Tape) or a combination of both. Symbolic and/or HTML links leave data fully accessible to users. Inactive data is tracked, protected and available at a future time if needed, or even deleted when the data has reached the end of its lifecycle. StorCycle allows data to be migrated to the ideal tier for data distribution, backup, archive or disaster recovery to fit any desired workflow. Spectra Logic’s StorCycle software is the answer to deploying a modern storage lifecycle management workflow.

Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage

Wasabi is a public cloud object storage service that is 1/5th the price of Amazon S3 and faster than the competition with no fees for egress or API requests. Wasabi provides 11 x 9s of data durability, high system availability, and support for immutable storage buckets. Wasabi is fully compatible with the Amazon S3 API with support for hundreds of S3-compatible storage applications and has been certified for compliance with enterprise security and privacy standards..

A hybrid storage implementation with StorCycle and Wasabi can help you:

  • Extend on-prem storage equipment investments
  • Reclaim expensive onsite storage capacity
  • Align storage costs with data value 
  • Improve disaster recovery and business continuity
  • Simplify operations and free up IT personnel for innovation-focused projects
