Televisión de Puebla Adopts Storage Workflow From Spectra Logic

Televisión de Puebla digitally preserves and protects invaluable Puebla Cultural heritage content with Spectra Logic StorCycle software solution.

Televisión de Puebla, the public TV network of the Mexican state of Puebla promotes Puebla’s educational, economic, social and cultural content through TV programming. Public TV networks of Televisión de Puebla cover almost 40 percent of the state’s population and aims to address the needs, expectations and lifestyles of Puebla citizens.

Televisión de Puebla began the search for a reliable data storage solution that could digitally and intelligently archive and preserve their cultural heritage, while facilitating the complex administration of their expanding amounts of stored data. Spectra Logic provided a cost-effective and seamless solution, consisting of Spectra StorCycle storage lifecycle management software, BlackPearl, an object storage platform, and Spectra Stack, a compact tape library.

“StorCycle presented the perfect way to simplify our storage management, automating the workflow for data archive and protection while providing familiar access,” said Televisión de Puebla. “Our goal was to free up space on primary storage by moving unused data to an archive infrastructure and StorCycle seamlessly enabled that.”

StorCycle identifies cold data residing on the organisation’s primary storage and transparently migrates it to a secure Perpetual Tier, which includes any combination of cloud storage, object storage disk, network attached storage and object storage tape. The BlackPearl object storage platform provides a portal to these storage targets, writing the data to tape in an open standard format. All data sent to tape is encrypted at rest, providing an extra layer of protection for the invaluable assets of Televisión de Puebla.

Offering the scalability needed by Televisión de Puebla, the new solution from Spectra allows the organisation to easily add more tape drives and slots to the Spectra Stack Tape Library as their archive grows. The overall solution frees up space on primary storage by moving unused data to the archive infrastructure so they can continue to preserve and protect their treasured Puebla cultural heritage long term.
