BlackPearl is a true software-enabled storage platform. It can be deployed as any of the following:

Software-Enabled Storage Solutions

By combing Spectra software and hardware, it is possible to create an end-to-end solution that helps organizations meet man business objectives. As a multi-purpose hybrid solution storage platform, BlackPearl easily and cost effectively scales up as object and file volumes grow; adapts as operational requirements change; and enables easy synchronization of data between on-premises and cloud storage.

Key Features

Why BlackPearl?

Storing data is a challenge. Storing data affordably, while providing more protection than ever before in an increasingly data-protection-sensitive climate, may be an organization’s single greatest obstacle.

Storage Targets

BlackPearl Converged Storage System unlocks multiple storage targets including spin-down disk, deep storage tape, and even public cloud. Through BlackPearl’s advanced data policy management software, data can be stored on any storage target and policies can be applied to determine how many copies will be made on each storage target and how long the data will reside.

BlackPearl Workflows for Moving Data

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.
