Integrates into Your Private Cloud
BlackPearl provides an object storage path, allowing for a single interface to tape using cloud protocols. Utilizing Spectra Logic’s BlackPearl, integrate your T680 into a private cloud leveraging the simple RESTful S3 interface and embedded management software in the BlackPearl. You can implement one of the existing Spectra certified client applications as a plug-and-play solution, or develop your own using a host of tools provided by Spectra. Lastly, existing S3 applications can be implemented with little to no modification. Simply put, BlackPearl unlocks tape’s economies of scale, allowing you to drive the total cost of your storage down as your system grows.
With BlackPearl’s integrated cloud out technology, you have the ability to store data locally, or in a public cloud. This converts your T680 tape library and BlackPearl into a true hybrid cloud storage system with the simple addition of public cloud storage and management, all through a single user interface. With BlackPearl’s user defined data management policies, you can choose where to store your data, how long to keep it on each of storage medium, and where to access it from. Users now have the ability to leverage tape’s cost-effective storage, and cloud’s distribution and disaster recovery situations to create a custom hybrid cloud storage system.
