It took a tape company to release the true potential of disk. ArcticBlue leverages BlackPearl’s hybrid storage architecture and power-down disk drives, creating the first object storage based disk platform that delivers maximum longevity, efficiency, and cost effectiveness with the performance of online disk.
Drive Lifecycle Management, Spectra’s power down technology, extends the life of your disk archive while delivering fast access to deep storage. Engineered for data reliability and integrity, Spectra’s unique implementation of ZFS software brings new life to long-term nearline disk storage.
ArcticBlue creates an on premise cloud with a Spectra S3 interface to make deep storage more accessible – all from a company that you want to do business with.
More than double the life at half the cost of today’s nearline storage – as low as 10¢/GB (US pricing).
