DESCRIPTION:

Spectra BlackPearl Converged Storage System solves the problem of costly and complex approaches to digital preservation by combining multiple standard interfaces and storage targets into a simple and affordable solution designed for diverse workflows.

BlackPearl Converged Storage System solutions allows data to move seamlessly into disk, tape, and cloud storage in a way not previously possible. To meet the demands of exponential data growth and long-term retention, BlackPearl enables users to easily store large data sets forever at virtually no cost. BlackPearl combines multiple standard interfaces and storage targets into a simple and affordable solution designed for diverse workflows. Very user friendly, BlackPearl is the ideal solution to help you organize and manage data.

KEY FEATURES:

  • BlackPearl enables users to deploy a tiered storage strategy that is cost effective, easy to manage and scalable to exabytes of data. With BlackPearl’s simple RESTful Spectra S3 interface, organizations will confidently store all of their data forever at costs as low as pennies per gigabyte.

  • 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.
     
  • Integrating BlackPearl requires minimal software acquisition costs to attach converged storage into your environment by leveraging standard file interfaces, or implementing software clients based upon RESTful interfaces. 
     
  • Object-based disk storage for BlackPearl provides fast access to data at a fraction of the cost of primary storage. Organizations have the ability to utilize the enterprise drives for instant access to changing data through an increased cache size.
     
  • 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.
