Simply and Affordably Preserve Data
Storing data affordably in an increasingly data-sensitive climate, may be an organization’s single greatest challenge.
Example of Nearline Gateway Applications
The Spectra Logic BlackPearl Nearline Gateway provides an easy, cloud-like interface to on-premises storage solutions, including Spectra tape and disk libraries, and multiple public cloud integrations.The cloud interface is called Spectra DS3, and a software client transfers data to the Spectra DS3 interface. Many Spectra DS3 clients already exist, with full integration into data management software. Customers can create their own clients or modify existing clients to custom fit their workflows and environments.
Spectra DS3 Interface modernizes the use of tape
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. Learn how to get started building here.
BlackPearl RioBroker is a software front-end to BlackPearl that acts as a data mover to speed file transfers, streamline workflows and scale out in both performance and capacity to accommodate growing amounts of digital assets. As a soft- ware front-end to BlackPearl, BlackPearl RioBroker offloads the data transfer job from the application to the BlackPearl RioBroker system, bringing greater performance and consistency to the entire platform. BlackPearl RioBroker simplifies the integration process to popular asset management software applications. It also facilitates seamless content migration from legacy storage software to a modern solution.
