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 BlackPearl Platform expands via hardware and software to include capacity, performance, and attack-hardened enhancements.
BlackPearl for Capacity NAS
BlackPearl NAS is the ideal solution for organizations from Enterprise IT to Media and Entertainment and everything in between. Designed around its cost-effective, scalable storage solution, the BlackPearl platform is made to handle a variety of workloads to be a backup target or data offload storage destination, among others. When the base NAS platform is expanded, it becomes the perfect springboard solution that is flexible enough to adapt to an ever-changing list of storage requirements.
BlackPearl Attack Hardened Storage
The BlackPearl platform has multiple features that, when combined, deliver Attack-Hardened storage. This Attack-Hardened storage mitigates the risk of data loss and accelerates ransomware response. The Attack-Hardened features of the BlackPearl platform include virtual air gap protection through immutable snapshots, multi-factor authentication and integration with applications to trigger snapshots. To further enhance ransomware protection, BlackPearl offers multi-site replication.
BlackPearl Native S3
BlackPearl’s native S3 extension enables easy-to-implement hybrid cloud storage with local S3 protocol and even failover to the public cloud. BlackPearl’s native S3 extension provides storage that makes it easy for organizations to deploy an S3-based storage solution at a single site, or across multiple sites, including replication to the public cloud.
BlackPearl On-Prem Glacier
BlackPearl brings the cost-effectiveness of Amazon S3 Glacier, but with the advantages of on-prem deployment by providing organizations with an on-prem Glacier-like tier. This eliminates the costs to retrieve data from the cloud and decreases the retrieval time of data from hours to minutes.
The first RESTful interface to tape, Spectra DS3 provides BlackPearl and client interaction via REST, allowing you to move large data sets easily to and from automated tape storage. The user only moves data through the client while BlackPearl handles all interaction with storage targets, including automated tape libraries. There are many Spectra DS3 clients that have been built by Spectra, its partners and its customers. Customers can also build their own Spectra DS3 integrations for custom workflows with the free Spectra Logic Developer Program.
