Spectra Logic has announced the transformation and expansion of its entire product portfolio with Attack Hardened and multi-cloud solutions. The introduction of Spectra’s Vail is a pivotal addition to Spectra’s new data storage and management ecosystem. Vail is a distributed multi-cloud software designed to provide universal access and placement of data across multi-site and multi-cloud storage, enabling seamless hybrid and multi-cloud workflows.
The new portfolio also includes the expansion of the Spectra’s BlackPearl multi-purpose hybrid storage platform, which has offered capacity NAS and S3 to tape for over 10 years, and now includes a native S3 interface providing local on-premises S3-standard object storage using the same economical scale-up architecture.
BlackPearl S3 enables bi-directional synchronization of data between public cloud and on-premises storage. BlackPearl helps to protect data from external and internal threats with new Attack-Hardened features such as triggered snapshots, multi-factor authentication, encryption and virtual air gap for ransomware mitigation.
Additionally, Spectra Logic has fortified its entire suite of solutions, including its StorCycle Storage Lifecycle Management software, and its family of enterprise-class tape library solutions, against the impact of ransomware and other cyberthreats with the addition of innovative patent pending Attack-Hardened features that help protect customers from cyberattacks, and offer them improved business continuity through rapid restore of clean data after an attack.
Vail and BlackPearl Platform enhancements will be available in November 2021. StorCycle 3.6 will be available in October 2021.
Spectra Stack enhancements are currently available. Spectra’s full line of tape libraries will be adopting Attack-Hardened features in early 2022.
