Spectra Stack Tape Library


Built with maximum flexibility at its core, the all-new Spectra Stack Tape Library meets 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. Slots are added in increments of 10, and expansion units are out-of-the-box and configured in under 30 minutes. Purchase what is needed today and not what is needed tomorrow, which means capacity on demand is a reality. This extreme flexibility provides affordability and expandability without compromise.


In addition to being the perfect solution for traditional storage, Spectra Stack is also BlackPearl-enabled, meaning it can easily become part of an object storage solution. One of the only object storage tape solutions on the market, the combination of Spectra Stack and BlackPearl Converged Storage System assures that this solution will continue to grow with business demands. It’s the perfect offload of Tier 1 storage as well as being a backup or offload for cloud environments. And the LTFS tape format ensures that data is easily interchangeable with other systems — eliminating vendor lock-in.


The Spectra Stack library makes 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® capability eliminates the need to make that costly decision. MigrationPass starts with the unique ability to migrate existing tape drives into the Spectra Stack library. It also includes a program to help users migrate to later LTO generations as they are released. This unprecedented offering protects user investments while providing a truly open approach to working with a technology designed for multi-generation use.
