Spectra TFinity ExaScale Tape Library
The World’s Highest Capacity Tape Library
With unsurpassed storage density packaged in the smallest footprint of any enterprise library on the market, the Spectra® TFinity® ExaScale offers industry-leading scalability with the speed necessary to meet requirements of the most demanding environments. From 100 to 56,400 LTO slots, you can store over 1EB (2.53EB compressed*) of data with LTO-9 tape technology. With up to 144 drives you can transfer data up to 207.4TB/hr. (518TB/hr. compressed*) using LTO-9 tape technology.
Deployed by some of the most recognized organizations in the world, the Spectra TFinity ExaScale provides maximum flexibility by allowing you to select the tape technology that is the perfect fit for your business. In addition to LTO tape technology, the Spectra TFinity Exascale is also compatible with IBM® TS11X0 enterprise tape technology and Oracle® T10000x enterprise tape technology, enabling all three in the same library. Current Spectra customers can upgrade to the new ExaScale and enjoy its cutting-edge innovations.
World’s Highest Capacity Storage System
Space-saving design. High-density architecture. Seamless scalability. All of these combine to produce the highest capacity, most scalable tape library in the world. Customers with vast storage requirements can store more than 1 exabyte of uncompressed data in a single tape library (2.5EB compressed*).
“Spectra lets us store enough data to substantially grow our digital video archive in a very small footprint.”
Stavros Hilaris, VP and CTO, National Geographic
Engineered for Speed — The Industry’s Fastest Tape Library
The TFinity ExaScale establishes a new standard in tape cartridge handling technology with the redesign of the robotics used to manipulate media. Called the High Performance Transporter (HPT), this elegant and well-built robotic picker delivers superior reliability, performance and flexibility. And each tape library contains two for dual operations.
Delivering Superior Reliability through Advanced Management
Simplified, reliable management tools allow you to focus on the business of managing data, not worrying about how and where to store it. Features such as Media Lifecycle Management, Drive and Library Lifecycle Management, Data Integrity Verification, Integrated Encryption, Power Monitoring, and many other added advantages work harmoniously to deliver a new definition of “top-of-the-line” tape library.
“Spectra is an ideal partner due to its deep storage expertise.”
Steve Tuecke, Globus
Impressive Flexibility with Limitless Possibilities
Built to meet your current tape technology requirements, the Spectra TFinity ExaScale expands easily with slots and drives to keep up with your future data growth. Its exclusive tri-media configuration eliminates vendor lock-in and enables you to migrate or integrate tape technologies that offer the lowest cost per gigabyte.
Brand Your Data Center
You live and breathe technology. Now it’s your turn to reflect the spirit of your organization in your data center. Customize your new TFinity ExaScale front panels. Just like the plentiful features in the TFinity ExaScale, the graphical possibilities are almost infinite.
“We use Spectra’s TFinity library for our NASA customer because of its impressive scalability. The new High Performance Transporter in the tape library delivers nearly twice the tape mount rate than our previous configuration, which has enabled our customers to improve efficiency by permitting faster access to archived data.”
Davin Chan, HPC Technical Director, CSRA Inc.
