Spectra Trade Up Program
Spectra’s Innovative Storage Technology
Is your storage solution no longer supported by your vendor? Have you outgrown your current storage requirements? Are you able to efficiently manage a continually evolving IT infrastructure and increasing compliance regulations with dated storage technology? Capitalize on your current storage solution and benefit from innovative storage technology by trading in your existing storage equipment. By participating in Spectra’s Trade Up Program, you get value from your aging storage hardware and benefit from Spectra’s innovative storage technology. Whether you are a small businesses or the most data-dependent Enterprise, Spectra Tape libraries offer you a high-performance and cost-effective storage option that continually helps you meet your evolving storage requirements.
Reclaim Data Center Space
Save space with Spectra’s high-density libraries. Spectra’s TeraPacks gives our libraries the smallest footprint and the highest density. A single-frame Spectra T950 occupies 60% less space than the nearest competitor and continues to grow and scale in a minimal footprint.
Grow—and Avoid Obsolescence
We stand behind our products and engineer our features to be “built-in” and not “bolted-on,” for maximum longevity. Spectra’s BlueScale interface is in its 12th release and continually offers updated feature and functionality enhancements that help you adapt to whatever you encounter in the future. For over 15 years, BlueScale has been continuously updated and enhanced with features ranging from self-monitoring to encryption and media management, giving you a tightly integrated structure that supports new technologies and requirements to better safeguard your data.
Save with Significant Energy Savings
Immediately realize the cost savings of tape by significantly reducing your power consumption. Spectra’s tape libraries are energy efficient and our EnergyAudit feature gives you the ability to monitor your storage’s power consumption, giving you greater control of your data center and budget.
For highly reliable tape archive and backup, Spectra tape libraries track and report the expected lifetime utilization thresholds for tape drives and library components. With advance notification, you can address any potential concerns about the critical components of your entire library before they become an operational issue.To ensure the viability of your data, Media Lifecycle Management (MLM) tracks and reports on health and security related statistics for Spectra Certified Media. Detailed reporting mitigates media problems and restore issues, allowing you to copy and move your data onto new media before degraded media affects your data.
Comprehensive Service and Support
Our expertise comes from over 30 years of solving real problems with hands-on lab work and on-site technical support. Our support staff is cross-trained over the entire storage environment—not just hardware—so we can assist you with all aspects of a problem. From open to close, we are committed to resolving any issue. SpectraGuard support offers a variety of options that minimize downtime and our Assisted Self Maintenance (ASM) option allows for customers to replace specific library components and the BlueScale interface offers proactive monitoring of your library to alerts you of any potential problems.
Enterprise Tape Drive Technology
TS11X0 Technology offers the highest capacity, fastest performance, and most reliable tape technology ever developed. Designed to provide customers with an enterprise-class tape storage solution, the TS11X0 technology benefits translate into fewer tapes needed to store the same amount of data, less labor and time to manage the tape inventory, and reduced library, application, and offsite slot costs.
Stable, Secure Future for Tape Technology
LTO (Linear Tape-Open) Ultrium Technology is optimized for high capacity and performance with exceptional reliability in either a stand-alone or an automated environment. The combination of cost savings, density and the long-term technology development of LTO tape media surpasses the current and future capabilities of the proprietary drives and tape. The LTO Consortium is committed to developing the technology for more generations over a expanded time frame.
