High Performance Computing Header

Your high performance environment continually tests the limits of technology and requires peak performance from all of your equipment—including your storage. Spectra’s data storage solutions help you push the boundaries of your operational objectives, giving you cost-effective storage that meets all of your performance, growth, and environmental needs. Spectra Logic builds some of the world’s largest storage systems.

“The incorporation of Spectra Logic’s active archive solution provides a platform for storage growth. It allows us to keep our primary data online and accessible to users, while also increasing the reliability of our stored data across physical sites.”
Allan Williams, Associate Director NCI

Extremely Scalable
Spectra tape libraries are designed for intelligent expansion to accommodate massively growing data sets. A TFinity® ExaScale, for example, can scale to 1.5EB in a single 44-frame library and up to 12EB in its 352-frame complex. Spectra tape libraries can meet your evolving needs and give you cost-effective storage during every stage of your growth.

Intensely Dense Storage
When data center real estate counts, Spectra Logic libraries offer unsurpassed storage density and minimal footprint through a unique and highly efficient design. Based on Spectra’s TeraPack architecture, Spectra tape libraries provide up to 50% improvement in data center floor space utilization. Increase your storage capacity in as little as 9 (TS Tape Technology) or 10 (LTO Technology) increments, the most granular and flexible in the industry. This dramatic, industry-leading storage density not only saves you data center space but also fits co-located and standardized data center designs.

Highly Energy Efficient
Save money with intelligent and power-efficient storage. Tape is the most cost-effective media for storing mass quantities of data, and Spectra tape libraries also consume the least amount of power when compared to competing libraries.

Tri-Media: Three Different Tape Technologies in the Same Library
High Performance Transporter
Secure XML Interface
Performance Improvements
High Performance Computing Tiered Storage Support

Spectra® BlackPearl® Converged Storage System
Spectra BlackPearl Converged Storage System solves the problem of costly and complex approaches to digital preservation by combining NAS and S3-based interfaces with multiple storage targets into a simple and affordable solution. Designed for numerous concurrent workflows, BlackPearl reduces the need for expensive third-party data movers by integrating Spectra S3 with a range of certified clients and simple file movers.

Campaign Storage
Spectra’s integration with Campaign Storage has unlocked an affordable, seamless archive for big data and supercomputing workflows where data migrates seamlessly across tiers. The solution is for all HPC systems, from high performance scratch parallel file systems such as Lustre® to all-storage targets supported by BlackPearl, including online disk, nearline disk, tape and even public cloud.

Through Campaign Storage’s integration for Lustre, all data stored on the Lustre file system can be protected, migrated and transparently managed through a single interface. This joint solution allows HPC users to deploy an affordable archive, which also frees up valuable space in the Lustre ecosystem.

Designed for big data and supercomputing, Campaign Storage and BlackPearl provides the best solution for deploying a fully integrated archive.
