T380 Overview

The Spectra T380 provides unmatched flexibility in a 28U form factor – from a growth path within the library or to a bigger library to continuous, innovative software and hardware enhancements to the ability to work with many backup and archive applications, including Spectra’s BlackPearl—this library is built for the long haul. This library also integrates major media types—LTO and TS1150 technology—allowing you to choose the right technology for your needs.

Need more storage? Want to upgrade to the newest version of LTO or TS? Changing backup applications? Building a private cloud? The T380 library has you covered.

Flexible, Efficient storage without compromise.

Roving TeraPack Architecture
When data center real estate counts, Spectra Logic libraries offer you unsurpassed storage density and minimal footprint through a unique and highly efficient design. Instead of using traditional tape slots, Spectra uses innovative “shelves” and TeraPack containers to store tape cartridges. This approach gives Spectra’s enterprise libraries industry-best density, allowing you to store 10 LTO slots (9 enterprise slots) in a single container. When paired with the T950’s transporter, the T950’s TeraPack is not just a storage container, but a vehicle for transporting 120TB of LTO data (135TB of TS1150 data) to drives, storage shelves, import, and export in a single robotic movement, reducing the time required handling media by 90 percent.

Administration: A common management interface, called BlueScale, for all library functions including configuration, administration, security, and remote operations.

Media Lifecycle Management (MLM): Tracks and monitors 40+ data points for each piece of Spectra Certified media in your library to proactively notify you of media health issues before they become problems.

Encryption: Integrated AES-256 encryption and key management providing easy, economical, powerful security.

Data Integrity Verification (DIV): Confirms data written to tape is readable immediately after it is written as well as at user selectable times thereafter to protect archived data.

Availability: Assisted Self Maintenance is an industry first support option that allows users to depot customer replaceable parts on site to quickly and easily replace failed components and maximize up time.
