Spectra BlackPearl Network Attached Storage
Designed as the optimal disk platform for storage of mid-tier data, including primary storage offload, data staging, backup and archiving, BlackPearl Network Attached Storage (NAS) is one of the most affordable enterprise storage solutions on the market, costing as little as pennies per gigabyte. Scaling capacity, performance and platform, the BlackPearl NAS allows users to easily and affordably manage large files while planning for the future. It delivers a complete array of storage and interface options for ultimate flexibility, including: Flash drives, Enterprise SAS drives, and Archive SATA drives – all supported simultaneously. To ensure content is protected, BlackPearl NAS was designed with three levels of protection RAID Z1, Z2 and Z3, global spare drives, redundant power, hot pair, and intelligent drive rebuild. BlackPearl NAS can also replicate itself using asynchronous replication to another BlackPearl NAS, creating a second copy of stored data for a higher level of data assurance.
Unique to the BlackPearl NAS system, is the ability to upgrade the solution with Spectra’s TranScale feature, at any time, to a BlackPearl Converged Storage System, an object storage solution that leverages multiple storage tiers. BlackPearl NAS is innovative because it is the ONLY NAS with three levels of field upgradability, allowing users to start small and plan for the future. Performance upgrades leverage flash-only pools for increased speed; capacity upgrades enable users to scale up to 10.7PB in a single rack; and platform upgrade capabilities allow users to easily TranScale BlackPearl NAS to a BlackPearl Converged Storage System. By upgrading BlackPearl NAS to BlackPearl Converged Storage System, a user’s traditional file system files (CIFS/NFS) can be passed through BlackPearl as object storage to additional near-line disk, archive disk with spin-down capability, digital tape, cloud, a replicated copy to another BlackPearl, or any combination of those storage options – all without requiring expensive middleware.

Add smart storage pooling to your shared storage workflows with the Tiger Pool add-on for Tiger Store. This enables you to pool multiple NTFS volumes in a non-destructive way to perform live storage expansion, decommission aging hardware without incurring downtime, and optimize the use of free space available. To users and applications, the pool looks and behaves like a normal volume while each pool volume member preserves its original folder structure. If any pool member fails, you only need to worry about restoring a fraction of your dataset while the rest of your data remains available. You can freely add and remove pool volume members of different manufacturers, LUN size and performance characteristics without ever putting data at risk.
Tiger Store is a cross-platform shared file system solution which enables you to build the most scalable NAS and/or SAN platforms. Tiger Store includes a metadata controller to enable high-performance collaborative workflows, as well as Windows, Mac and Linux SAN and/or LAN client connectivity, delivering the performance that teams of editors, artists, and colorists using Avid, Adobe, Autodesk, Blackmagic and other software need to ingest, edit, transcode and deliver content. Productivity and uptime are maintained with optional High Availability configurations. The Tiger Pool add-on for Tiger Store offers smart storage pooling for simplified data management. Tiger Store is available as a software-only solution or an integrated appliance.
Migrated files remain accessible from the same folders as before, but their contents are tucked away in lower cost object storage. In this way, even legacy Windows applications can leverage the extended capacity. Their data is automatically recalled to primary storage only in the case the file is opened.
