​BlackPearl With Direct Archive To Amazon Cloud

Spectra Logic’s BlackPearl Deep Storage Gateway now allows direct archive to Amazon’s public cloud offering Amazon S3. This available in August.

“Private cloud storage enabled by BlackPearl provides the best option for balancing performance and cost; however, some customer workflows benefit greatly from incorporating a public cloud storage infrastructure,” said Matt Starr Spectra Logic’s CTO. “Public cloud works best when a disaster recovery copy is needed; when wide data distribution is called for; to create geographic dispersion of data; and when other cloud-based features can be leveraged, such as automatic transcoding. The new Spectra hybrid storage ecosystem means that Spectra customers don’t have to choose between public and private cloud; BlackPearl brings them together seamlessly.”

The Spectra hybrid storage ecosystem:

* Allows data to be moved to the public cloud for backup or disaster recovery.

* Ensures 'genetic diversity' of data storage via storage on different media types and geographic dispersion of data—two key elements of a solid digital preservation strategy.

* Creates a multi-tier private cloud to store a copy of frequently accessed data on online disk, and archive infrequent or rarely accessed data “indefinitely” on Spectra ArcticBlue disk-based archive or Spectra Logic tape. BlackPearl also includes an automatic, time-based expiration policy that can be customised by the storage administrator.

* Shares content globally by utilising the public cloud’s inherent infrastructure to make content available to disparate users and sites worldwide and it "provides data retrieval management policies to limit or prevent unexpected retrieval charges through BlackPearl’s Advanced Bucket Management."
