Store Massive Data Forever with Black Pearl

To meet the demands of extreme data growth and long-term retention, the Spectra BlackPearl™ Deep Storage Appliance enables users to easily store massive data forever at virtually no cost. Designed for organizations where data is a significant part of their operations, BlackPearl allows data to move seamlessly into mass tape storage in a way not previously possible. BlackPearl enables users to deploy a tier of deep storage that is cost effective, easy to manage and scalable to Exabytes of data. With BlackPearl’s simple RESTful DS3 interface and embedded tape management software, organizations will confidently store all of their data forever at costs as low as pennies per Gigabyte.

BlackPearl offers high performance transfer of bulk data to deep storage, allowing tape to sequentially read and write. BlackPearl optimizes how buckets are written to tape for best performance with up to 172 TB/hr with 120 LTO-6 drives (compressed capacity) in a Spectra enterprise library. Additionally, staging data to BlackPearl’s SSDs allows for up to 400 MB/sec reads and writes per appliance to easily offload your data to tape.

BlackPearl takes advantage of tape’s low cost, economically scaling to Exabyte capacities. It also promotes reductions in OPEX related expenditure by leveraging Spectra T-Series environmental benefits of high-density footprints and low power consumption.
