Per soddisfare le esigenze di estrema crescita dei dati e la conservazione a lungo termine, la Spectra BlackPearl™ Deep Storage Gateway permette agli utenti di archiviare per sempre enormi quantità di dati praticamente a costo zero.
Progettato per le organizzazioni dove i dati costituiscono una parte significativa delle loro operazioni, BlackPearl consente lo spostamento fluido dei dati in mass storage tape in un modo che in precedenza non era possibile.
BlackPearl consente agli utenti di utilizzare un livello di storage profondo che è conveniente, semplice da utilizzare e scalabile per Exabytes di dati.
Con una semplice interfaccia RESTful DS3 e un tape management software incorporato di BlackPearl, le organizzazioni immagazzineranno tutti i loro dati per sempre ad un costo basso come centesimi per Gigabyte.
The lowest cost storage available
BlackPearl takes advantage of tape’s low cost, economically scaling to Exabyte capacities. It also promotes reductions in OPEX related expenditure by leveraging Spectra tape library environmental benefits of high-density footprints and low power consumption. New cloud-based deep storage architecture of BlackPearl delivers lower upfront and ongoing costs of storage.
Minimal software costs
Integrating BlackPearl requires minimal software acquisition costs to attach deep storage into your environment by leveraging software clients based upon RESTful interfaces. Users can develop their own clients for the DS3 interface or access a library of existing software clients available through the Spectra Software Developer program.
Reduce time spent managing long-term storage
Deep storage is the ultimate resting place for all data, and with BlackPearl there is no need to continually move data to another storage platform. BlackPearl minimizes the time spent moving data, allowing users to target objects for deep storage. With BlackPearl, users do not need any previous experience with tape library systems. BlackPearl handles how data is written to tape and also the tape library inventory, robotic commands and other aspects of how the library stores the data.
Simple approach to interface and manage tape
By leveraging the DS3 interface, BlackPearl unlocks tape’s true calling. BlackPearl takes user defined buckets, caches the buckets on high speed SSD storage and determines the best method to write it to tape for greatest system performance. To ensure perpetuity and ease of access for your data, the BlackPearl system writes data on tape in the open LTFS format to ensure you will always have access to it.
Ensures data security, reliability and integrity
Spectra tape libraries provide a powerful set of tools that allow for data integrity verification and notifications of media, drive, library status and health. BlackPearl also offers extended data security through Spectra’s AES 256-encryption offerings.
Deep Storage Interface modernizes the use of tape
The first RESTful interface to tape, DS3 provides BlackPearl and client interaction via REST, allowing you to move large data sets easily to and from deep storage. The user only moves data through the client while BlackPearl handles all interaction with the tape library. There are many DS3 clients that have been built by Spectra, our partners and our customers.
