17 BlackPearl Certified Clients Now Available

AMSTERDAM and BOULDER, Colo. –September 12, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Spectra Logic has added a new mid-tier enterprise-grade data storage offering to its BlackPearl family—the Spectra® BlackPearl® Network Attached Storage (NAS) solution. The NAS-based disk platform can provide an affordable storage location for offloading inactive tier one data, landing ingested media, or backup storage. BlackPearl NAS scales from 48TB to 7.1PB per unit, includes all the enterprise-grade features of Spectra’s award-winning NAS product lines, and is easily upgradeable to a full BlackPearl Converged Storage System with seamless access to multiple local and remote storage targets including tape, disk and cloud options. The simple BlackPearl upgrade path provides investment protection for companies facing the challenges of changing regulations, cloud initiatives and corporate mandates.

BlackPearl NAS users can TranScale® to a BlackPearl Converged Storage System, unlocking multiple storage targets. BlackPearl NAS appears to the network like any other readily mountable NAS solution. With TranScale, BlackPearl also connects to nearly unlimited tape and archive disk locally, and offers replication to alternate private or public cloud sites for redundancy and disaster recovery. The TranScale upgrade path is a Spectra Logic exclusive option which has been offered in its tape library family since 2007.

Compared to other NAS products, Spectra BlackPearl NAS is:

  • Less expensive – A Spectra BlackPearl NAS is shipping now at a starting list price of $14,200
  • More scalable – Scales beyond just TBs, to 7.1 PB in a single rack
  • Upgradeable – BlackPearl NAS comes with the ability to upgrade and TranScale into a full Converged Storage System, seamlessly tiering content to tape, cloud and disaster recovery sites
  • More flexible – An affordable file and object storage solution designed for federal, general IT, media and entertainment and video surveillance environments

“BlackPearl NAS is the ideal solution for a number of workflows because it simplifies
data storage processes and future-proofs the initial NAS storage investment,” said Matt Starr, CTO of Spectra Logic. “BlackPearl NAS is unique due to its ‘Object Storage Out’ capability. Customers can implement a simple, reliable, affordable NAS solution today and upgrade to a fully converged storage system with a number of configuration options.”

The BlackPearl Converged Storage System was first introduced in 2013, and solves the problem of costly and complex approaches to digital preservation by combining multiple interfaces and storage targets into a simple and affordable solution designed for diverse workflows. Its partner ecosystem continues to flourish, with 17 certified clients available today, including recently tested and certified clients from NL Technology, Object Matrix, Pixit Media and SuitcaseTV.
