Spectra T680 Tape Solution Overview
With the T680’s proven tape technology, this library will support your organization for the long haul. Built around Spectra’s patented roving TeraPack Architecture, the T680 tape library provides the ability to load, move, store and eject 300TB of compressed* LTO data in a single robotic movement.
With this exceptionally high-performance tape library, you will meet your backup, archive and deep storage requirements. Seamlessly scalable from 50 to 670 LTO slots, and from 2 to 12 drives in a 42U form factor. You can store 8.6 PB (20.4 PB compressed*) of data, and you can transfer data up to 15.5 TB/hr. (32.4 TB/hr. compressed*) using LTO-8 tape technology.
Efficient, Scalable storage without compromise.
Roving TeraPack Architecture
When data center real estate counts, Spectra Logic libraries offer you unsurpassed storage density and minimal footprint through a unique and highly efficient design. Instead of using traditional tape slots, Spectra uses innovative “shelves” and TeraPack containers to store tape cartridges. This approach gives Spectra’s enterprise libraries industry-best density, allowing you to store 10 LTO slots (9 enterprise slots) in a single container. When paired with the T950’s transporter, the T950’s TeraPack is not just a storage container, but a vehicle for transporting 120TB of LTO data (135TB of TS1150 data) to drives, storage shelves, import, and export in a single robotic movement, reducing the time required handling media by 90 percent..
