ArcticBlue Delivers Twice the Shelf Life of Competing Disk Platforms at Half the Cost
BOULDER, Colo.— October 15, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Spectra Logic today unveiled ArcticBlue™, a new nearline disk storage system. ArcticBlue leverages the company’s BlackPearl™ hybrid storage architecture and Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR) disk media, creating an object storage based disk platform with maximum longevity, efficiency and cost effectiveness. Datacenter and private cloud managers can now affordably integrate a long-life nearline disk solution with online performance.
Part of the Spectra Logic deep storage product set, ArcticBlue sits behind the BlackPearl Deep Storage Gateway, providing an S3 object storage interface that is easy to implement and use. ArcticBlue leverages BlackPearl’s new Advanced Bucket Management (ABM) feature, which automatically creates one or more copies on both ArcticBlue disk systems and Spectra Logic tape libraries, creating a deep storage solution that provides true genetic diversity and digital preservation of data.
“Digital tape has always led the way on cost, efficiency and longevity, and BlackPearl supplements a tape system by simplifying the interface and eliminating the barriers of software complexity,” said Matt Starr, chief technology officer, Spectra Logic. “ArcticBlue revolutionizes the entire system by adding a low cost, direct access online tier that can be used in conjunction with or instead of tape. It’s a product that reflects Spectra Logic’s 36 years of deep storage expertise.”

“ArcticBlue is a breakthrough product for Spectra Logic that fills an open segment in private cloud, object, nearline and archive storage,” said Nathan Thompson, chief executive officer, Spectra Logic. “Combining disk and tape with the benefits of cloud storage, creates a genetically diverse storage media strategy, one we believe is important in assuring digital preservation.”
Spectra’s Developer Community is comprised of dozens of companies that have developed BlackPearl clients, and will continue to grow with the addition of ArcticBlue. Spectra’s open source Software Development Kits, APIs and S3 clients will be highlighted at Spectra’s inaugural Virtual Developer Conference on Tuesday, October 20th.
ArcticBlue will begin shipping in December 2015. Pricing for a 48-drive ArcticBlue disk system begins at $49,920. A full-rack configuration delivers 6.1PB raw capacity, before compression of data.
