Spectra’s Verde Disk Solution delivers the ultimate in flexibility by providing customers with the ability to mix and match drives. Designed to meet the needs of varying workflows, a single Verde solution can support multiple drive types, including 4TB, 8TB and 12TB enterprise disk drives, and high-performance solid state drives, and expand from 48TB to 10.7PB in storage capacity. Simply put, Verde is the disk solution for every organization.
Mix and Match Drive Types
Verde allows multiple workflows to be serviced by a single disk solution. Unlike other disk storage offerings which only allow one drive type, Verde offers you the flexibility to mix and match drive types. These include:
The enterprise drive is built for any workload, from continuously changing data sets in Media and Entertainment to more static workloads like backup. There are multiple capacity disk drives available including 4TB, 8TB, and 12TB. A Verde solution with enterprise disk drives starts as low as 48TB of raw capacity and expands up to 10.7 PB in a full rack.
Solid State Drive
Using SSD-based flash, Verde provides the flexibility to add high throughput, high capacity SSD to any Verde. Supporting a 1TB and 2TB SSD, Verde enables high-throughput storage. This is ideal for fast read workload (write once, read many) or as a high-performance NAS landing zone for data that is ultimately moving to tape via a Spectra®BlackPearl® Converged Storage System.
Fast and Flexible Configuration
Verde’s flexibility allows you to choose the level of protection most suited for your workflow. On the graphical interface, simply select the parity level desired: single, double, triple, mirror, or none.
Likewise, using a simple slidebar tool, choose between capacity and performance and pick the configuration that best fits your needs. Verde will do all the work making arrays, parity groups, and stripes, all in a matter of seconds.
