​Spectra Logic Adds Data Mover To BlackPearl

The BlackPearl storage product now includes Spectra Logic’s software RioBroker which acts to speed file transfers, streamline workflows and scale out BlackPearl in both performance and capacity. Also, Tiger Technology’s Tiger Bridge now work with BlackPearl.

As a software front-end to Spectra’s BlackPearl, an object storage platform that moves content into disk, tape and cloud, Spectra RioBroker offloads the data transfer job from the application to the Spectra RioBroker system.

“This brings greater performance, parallelism, scalability, ease of implementation and consistency to the entire platform,” said David Feller, Spectra vp product management. “Spectra RioBroker also simplifies the integration process to popular asset management software applications by providing Partial File Recall and File Transfer Protocol (FTP) capabilities. Spectra’s RioBroker software is available now.

New certified clients for BlackPearl include Imagine Communications’ Nexio Motion and Tiger Technology’s Tiger Bridge. Additional integrations are complete for axle ai, GLOOKAST and Marquis Postflux for Adobe Premiere.

Spectra also has expanded its Avid environment support to include integration with MediaCentral Cloud UX platform.

“The increasing number of certified clients for Spectra’s BlackPearl is evidence that the solution has gained remarkable traction, especially in complex media and entertainment environments,” said Feller.

Bob Vassar, vp of worldwide technical sales and services for Tiger Technology, added, “As the certified solution with Tiger Bridge and Spectra BlackPearl has evolved, we firmly believe that delivering our totally integrated storage solution that spans from production to nearline to archive will help end users create, protect and monetize their valuable digital assets.”
