BlackPearl Object Storage Disk
Spectra’s BlackPearl Object Storage Disk delivers long-term disk-only storage for the price of tape. Powered by Spectra’s BlackPearl Converged Storage System, BlackPearl Object Storage Disk provides organizations with object-based, disk storage that scales in capacity and performance with a very low total cost of ownership (TCO).
Engineered for data reliability and integrity, Spectra’s unique implementation of ZFS software brings new life to disk storage. BlackPearl Object Storage Disk creates an on-premise cloud with a Spectra S3 interface to make archive storage more accessible. And the 16TB disk drive extends storage capacities to more than 15.4 petabytes (PB) in a single BlackPearl Object Storage Disk solution.
The spin-down disk technology of BlackPearl Object Storage Disk intelligently powers down bands of storage when idle, minimizing disk degradation and extending the life of the disks up to seven years. This powerful feature alleviates the need for a subsystem refresh in three or four years, providing significant cost savings in procuring and deploying a new system.
Perfect for tapeless IT environments, BlackPearl Object Storage Disk is also a cost-effective complement to environments with tape storage that need affordable long-term online data protection.
