OpenStorage AG presents Spectra's Stackable Automated Tape Library using LTO-9 drives

(PresseBox) (Mainz-Kastel, )
Built with maximum flexibility at its core, the Spectra Stack Tape Library from Spectra Logic will meet your backup, archive and perpetual storage requirements. Designed to be easy to use and manage, it will perform in the most demanding environments. The Spectra Stack tape library was built for 24/7 duty cycle data centers. Scalable from 10 to 560 slots, Spectra Stack stores over 10PB (25PB compressed*) of data using LTO-9 media and is equipped with the ability to use up to 42 LTO drives in an easily expandable, stackable tape library. Data can be transferred with a maximum native transfer rate of 45,36 TB/Hr. (compressed 113,4 TB/Hr.). Each module is a standard 6U form factor and can be expanded in minutes by adding an expansion module providing up to 80 additional slots and up to 6 additional drives.

Management Interface

The easy to use and manage Spectra Stack Management software is fully integrated library management software that has been adapted from Spectra Enterprise BlueScale software to run optimally on the new Spectra Stack tape library. The interface is accessed via an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) available on both the color touchscreen of the control module or via remote web interface.

Spectra Guard Support overview

Support for Spectra Stack ranges from our standard worldwide next-business-day replacement to more advanced alternatives, including same day, four-hour onsite service. Spectra allows users to make immediate repairs guided by instructions on the front panel. Spectra's exclusive optional Assisted Self Maintenance (ASM) kits are available to users who desire onsite, user replaceable, spare parts including – tape drives, power supplies, library controller module, and tape robot.

Media Lifecycle Management (MLM)

MLM tracks over 40 pieces of information on each tape within the Spectra Stack library. The information is recorded onto the MAM chip of each LTO tape and follows tapes into offsite storage as well. Spectra Stack Management MLM and BlueScale MLM are compatible and tapes created on either are able to be shared between libraries.

Investment protection

Investment protection has a whole new meaning when Spectra Stack is selected, with the ability to integrate existing LTO tape drives into your new library and maintain access to your applications and data. It also includes a program to help you migrate to newer LTO generations as they are released.

Partitioning

Compatibility is essential when deploying new tape technology. The Spectra Stack supports all industry-standard operating systems and major backup applications allowing users the ability run up to 20 applications at the same time with partitioning. Each partition requires a minimum of 1 drive and 5 tape slots.

Capacity on Demand (COD)

Users can start with as few as 10 tape slots enabled and grow the number of slots needed over time. Both the control module and expansion module(s) are equipped with 80 tape slots. Slots are enabled in increments of 10.

Air Gap

Attack-Hardened Storage Management – Tape offers the only true “offline” air gap for data protection. But as ransomware becomes more intelligent, it is not out of the realm of possibility that ransomware could implement tape load commands to delete, steal or encrypt data. Spectra’s Stack Tape Library allows users to create a secure storage space not accessible by software. Human intervention would be required to move tapes to and from this secure area. The design is simple yet effective.

Multiple Encryption Options

Best practices require that all removable media be encrypted. Spectra Stack makes that easy.

Spectra Stack Management Encryption – Built in encryption key management. Spectra Stack Management Encryption and Spectra Encryption are fully compatible. Encrypted tapes can be freely moved between all Spectra libraries provided the encryption key(s) is exported/imported for the given tape set.

Support for ESKM 4, SKLM, and KMIP encryption functionality is available as well

Expansion

Adding an expansion module to the Spectra Stack library is easy and can be done without the need for professional assistance. By following the nine simple steps outlined below, users can add an expansion module with up to 80 slots and up to 6 drives in less than 30 minutes.
