Spectra StorCycle and OpenDrives technical solution brief promo
LOS ANGELES and BOULDER, March 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spectra Logic, a leader in data storage and data management solutions, and OpenDrives, a global provider of enterprise-grade, hyper-scalable network-attached storage (NAS) solutions, today announced an end-to-end, fully integrated data storage and storage lifecycle management solution to improve data storage workflows, ensure organizational agility and reduce costs. The combined solution integrates OpenDrives’ high-performance, low-latency primary storage with Spectra Logic’s StorCycle® Storage Lifecycle Management software that accelerates workflow productivity and advances business efficiencies.
“To stay competitive, organizations must continuously evaluate their existing workflows and modernize their IT infrastructures,” said Jeff Braunstein, director of product management for Spectra Logic. “The OpenDrives and Spectra Logic joint solution delivers a modern ‘next-generation’ combination of primary and secondary storage together with a dynamic storage lifecycle management strategy that ensures data and content is in the right place at the right time.”
OpenDrives’ hyper-scalable NAS solutions provide enterprise-grade primary storage that is flexible, scalable and fast, delivering low power consumption and high performance. When combined with Spectra’s StorCycle Storage Lifecycle Management software, the joint solution delivers Ethernet-based scale-out storage via StorCycle’s ability to quickly identify and migrate inactive data and finished projects from primary storage to a lower cost tier of storage that includes all tiers of cloud storage, spinning disk and tape.
The solution uses open storage standards such as SMB, NFS and LTFS, and can be installed and configured in only a few hours. By reducing data on the primary tier, organizations maximize primary tier storage capacities while configuring the more economical perpetual tier to be as responsive as their workflows demand.
“Any organization experiencing exponential data growth has had to rely on either throughput, software management, or secondary storage for digital preservation, an often fragmented and costly process,” said Sean Lee, chief product and strategy officer at OpenDrives. “By integrating Spectra Logic’s StorCycle software with OpenDrives’ NAS platform, we’re streamlining data usage, access and protection to help IT and storage managers balance the speed of data access with the cost of storage and take a modern data storage approach.”
Starting today, all global entities in media and entertainment, high performance computing, education, research, healthcare and government can experience a modern, cost-effective solution for end-to-end data storage and lifecycle management with OpenDrives and Spectra Logic.
