Economical Long-Term Data Preservation

BlackPearl On-Prem Glacier* offers an on-prem glacier storage tier that is optimized for preserving long-term data at a low price point.  Object storage disk provides instant retrieval of data, and when paired with object storage tape, offers offline air gap storage that is secure and ransomware resilient.

Benefits of BlackPearl On-Prem Glacier

Glacier Tier of Storage

  • Integrates with applications that support AWS Glacier
  • Object storage disk provides instant retrieval of long-term data
  • Object tape provides a deep archive tier of storage for long-term retention

On-Prem Hybrid Cloud Storage

  • Delivers the long-term retention functionality of cold storage in the cloud with on-prem performance
  • Optimized for storing large, unstructured datasets at a fraction of the cost of public storage
  • Object storage disk scales up to 20PB of S3 storage in a single rack. Object storage tape expands to multiple exabytes of storage

Security and Ransomware Resiliency

  • Secure on-prem and offline air gap storage on tape protects data from internal and external threats
  • Object Lock provides ransomware protection ensuring objects cannot be encrypted, deleted or overwritten
  • Encryption at rest and in-flight eliminates unintended data exposure
