MLM allows you to proactively manage your tape inventory through simple monitoring of over 40 health statistics and automatically identifies at-risk tapes ready for retirement.

Certified Media assures data integrity using an integrated, intelligent and comprehensive set of Data Integrity Verification (DIV) tools when integrated with Spectra T-Series libraries. PreScan verifies your tapes are safe prior to usage and QuickScan and PostScan verify your data has been properly written to tape.


Spectra Certified Media arrives on your doorstep; each tape unwrapped with pre-applied barcode labels and bundled in TeraPack containers ready for bulk-loading into your Spectra T-Series library. When it's time to export them from the library, the TeraPacks can be covered and protected as they are stored onsite or offsite.

With Spectra Certified Media you order it any way you want it. A myriad of choices allow you to specify the exact number of tapes you require with no minimum order, custom or predefined barcode sequences, TeraPacks with or without dust covers or no TeraPack at all. The choice is yours.
