Spectra Logic Releases StorCycle To Automate Data Management

Spectra Logic says StorCycle, its storage management software, is available and able to cut data storage costs.

The firm says typically, around 80 percent of an organisation’s data is inactive, but is kept on an “expensive” primary storage tier, taking up valuable storage capacity and increasing storage costs. StorCycle is said, by Spectra Logic, to provide an affordable way for organisations to identify and move this inactive data to lower-cost storage platforms while making it easily accessible to users.

StorCycle automatically scans primary storage for inactive files and migrates them to a lower cost tier of storage, called the Perpetual Tier, which can include any combination of cloud storage, object storage disk, network-attached storage (NAS) and tape, ensuring the data is protected. This reduces the amount of data on expensive primary storage, shrinking backup and recovery windows, reducing the need for additional primary storage, and increasing overall performance.

In addition, StorCycle’s unique Project Archive feature enables users to tag and move entire project data sets to a perpetual storage tier. The completed project can be accessed by an organisation when needed, all while being preserved on less costly storage for as long as required.
