Spectra Stack

Spectra Stack

Teradactyl LLC present’s the Spectra Stack the ultimate way for growing a library.

Expand as you need it, when you need it. Purchase as you need it, when you need it. The Spectra Logic Spectra Stack is an affordable and scalable solution which is designed for ease of installation, expansion, and management. It is one of the few stackable libraries that is rated for 100% duty cycle, or a 24 hours / 7 days a week environment. Adding an expansion module is quick and  configurable from out of the box

A single Spectra Stack module consists of a 6U library containing 1 to 6 LTO drives with 10 to 80 LTO tape slots. With having 7 modules in a rack, this allows for a scalability from 1 to 42 tape drives, and 10 to 560 tape slots. This means that a completely expanded Stack could hold 6.7PB uncompressed data or 16.7PB compressed data.

The Spectra Stack and Spectra’s MigrationPass Service allows users to preserve their drives and thereby their media investment in them. Spectra Stack can use existing drives LTO-5 and new LTO generations. Older LTO generation drives may be migrated into a Spectra Stack, along with newer and future LTO generations when they are released. Spectra Stack has the ability to read LTO-3 generation to present. Partitioning the Spectra Stack allows for daily operations transparent migration between LTO generations.
