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.
The Right Fit for Every Organization- With BlackPearl’s product family, organizations will find the perfect fit for their workflow.

Spectra® Stack – Modern Storage for Today’s Data Center
Spectra’s Stackable Automated Tape Library
Built with maximum flexibility at its core, the all-new Spectra Stack Tape Library from Spectra Logic will meet your backup, archive and perpetual storage requirements. Designed to be easily installed, expanded and managed, the Spectra Stack is rated at a 100% duty cycle – meaning it is one of the only stackable libraries built to perform in a 24/7 environment. Spectra Stack starts as a 6U library with 1 to 6 LTO tape drives and 10 to 80 LTO tape slots. Each module of the Spectra Stack holds an additional 10 to 80 tape slots and 1 to 6 tape drives. Scalable from 10 to 560 tape slots and 1 to 42 tape drives, users can store more than 6.7PB (16.7PB compressed*) of data in a fully expanded Spectra Stack library. This extreme flexibility provides affordability and expandability without compromise.
Scalability: Capacity on Demand is a Reality
120TB to 6.7PB (320TB to 16.7PB compressed*) in a standard 19-inch rack
Easily expand your Spectra Stack library by adding slots and drives. Start with as few as 10 slots and a single LTO tape drive. Add up to 80 slots and 6 drives in a single module. Slots are added in increments of 10, allowing users to add only what they need, when they need it. Purchase what you need today and not what you will need tomorrow, which means capacity on demand is a reality. Adding an expansion module allows up to 80 additional slots and up to 6 additional drives, making it effortless to grow to 7 modules in a single rack. Upgrading to meet data growth needs is EASY and FAST — expansion units are out-of-the-box and configured in under 30 minutes.
Modernize your Storage with MigrationPassSM from Spectra Logic
Both Spectra and the Spectra Stack library make any migration plan seamless. Tape is designed for long-term data storage, but too often users are required to sacrifice their existing investment in tape drives when they move to a new tape library. Spectra Stack’s MigrationPass eliminates the need to make that costly decision. MigrationPass starts with the unique ability to migrate your existing tape drives into the Spectra Stack library. It also includes a program to help you migrate to later LTO generations as they are released. This unprecedented offering protects user investment while providing a truly open approach to working with a technology designed for multi-generation use.
