Modern tape libraries deliver simple, flexible and secure data storage for pennies per gigabyte
BOULDER, Colo. – March 1, 2018 – Spectra Logic today announced a major expansion to its family of automated tape storage solutions with the introduction of two new tape library products. These products include the all-new Spectra® Stack, a highly scalable, modular and affordable tape library that allows users to start with a single tape drive and 10 tape slots, growing incrementally as their data needs increase, and the new Spectra® T950v Tape Library, an affordable, entry-level model of the popular high-end Spectra® T950 Tape Library family. The new tape libraries provide both value and functionality for organizations wrestling with growing data sets and shrinking budgets. In other tape updates, the company announced that all Spectra tape libraries± — up to and including the new T950v — can now be deployed with lower-cost half-height Fibre or SAS LTO tape drives, potentially saving tens of thousands of dollars per installation. In addition, Spectra plans to offer RoCE 10Gigabit Ethernet connectivity with its IBM® TS1155 tape drives for Ethernet tape library integration in Spectra’s T380, T950, T950v and TFinity® ExaScale Tape Libraries, allowing customers to use their existing Ethernet infrastructure without investing in additional hardware.
