Scalability: Capacity on Demand is a Reality
120TB to 6.7PB (320TB to 16.7PB compressed*) in a standard 19-inch rack
Easily expand your Spectra Stack library by adding slots and drives. Start with as few as 10 slots and a single LTO tape drive. Add up to 80 slots and 6 drives in a single module. Slots are added in increments of 10, allowing users to add only what they need, when they need it. Purchase what you need today and not what you will need tomorrow, which means capacity on demand is a reality. Adding an expansion module allows up to 80 additional slots and up to 6 additional drives, making it effortless to grow to 7 modules in a single rack. Upgrading to meet data growth needs is EASY and FAST — expansion units are out-of-the-box and configured in under 30 minutes.
Part of a Modern Storage Architecture:
BlackPearl Enabled – Ready to integrate with object storage to tape.
In addition to being the perfect solution for traditional storage, Spectra Stack is also BlackPearl-enabled, meaning it can easily become part of an object storage solution. One of the only object storage tape solutions on the market, the combination of Spectra Stack and BlackPearl assures that this solution will continue to grow with business demands. It’s the perfect offload of Tier 1 storage as well as being a backup or offload for cloud environments. And the LTFS tape format ensures that data is easily interchangeable with other systems — eliminating vendor lock in.
Modernize your Storage with MigrationPassSM from Spectra Logic
Both Spectra and the Spectra Stack library make any migration plan seamless. Tape is designed for long-term data storage, but too often users are required to sacrifice their existing investment in tape drives when they move to a new tape library. Spectra Stack’s MigrationPass eliminates the need to make that costly decision. MigrationPass starts with the unique ability to migrate your existing tape drives into the Spectra Stack library. It also includes a program to help you migrate to later LTO generations as they are released. This unprecedented offering protects user investment while providing a truly open approach to working with a technology designed for multi-generation use.
Maintaining access to existing applications is fairly straightforward when migrating from one tape library to another, but what happens when you need to migrate from the data application itself? How is the metadata transferred? How are competing applications maintained in the same system simultaneously? How do I migrate data to the newest tape technology? Spectra’s Professional Services team supports thousands of users with these issues on a regular basis. Let our experts guide you through the process.
Easy Integration so You Don’t Have to Worry if Your Library
Will Play Nice.
Compatibility is essential when deploying new tape technology. The Spectra Stack supports all industry-standard operating systems and major backup applications. Users can run up to 20 applications at the same time with partitioning.
