BlackPearl Workflows for Moving Data

Spectra BlackPearl Workflow for Moving Data

Data can be archived to Spectra Logic storage via several different paths or workflows. Manual file movement is employed when the user can identify the files to be moved themselves. Advanced scanning software can search a file system and identify files to be archived based on date, project, or other criteria. Fully automated archiving software can continuously scan and archive inactive files while still allowing users to access the files as they always have. And applications intended for other specific tasks, such as video asset management software, can allow users to archive directly to Spectra storage without leaving the application.
