“The whole concept of ‘deep storage’ is on target with the trends and
requirements ESG is seeing in the market,” said Steve
Duplessie, founder and senior analyst, Enterprise
Strategy Group (ESG). “More organizations are recognizing the long
term value that lies within their data, so data volumes and retention
periods are increasing. Pair this trend with the market's desire to use
RESTful interfaces and Spectra Logic seems to be exactly in the right
place to take advantage. It's a good idea all around."
Ease-of-Use. ISV partners and end user developers can leverage
software clients that Spectra is making available or easily write
their own clients. The DS3 interface is easy to use, even for those
with no previous tape storage experience.
Efficiency. The DS3 interface allows applications to move large
quantities of data with minimal effort, and is ideal for accessing the
lowest cost storage media for large data objects. It reduces cost and
simplifies management by providing intelligent data object
reads/writes, which optimizes tape drive and tape media utilization
Scalability. By providing easy access to high density,
extensible tape storage systems, DS3 enables organizations to achieve
massive scalability. DS3 supports deep storage in a wide capacity
range with configurations as small as 15 terabytes and scales into
multiple exabytes in a single tape storage system.
Modern Interface to Deep Storage – DS3
In support of its vision, Spectra Logic has introduced the DS3
interface, a RESTful interface supported by all of its T-Series
tape library data storage systems. By leveraging RESTful protocols,
the DS3 interface enables modern architecture frameworks to easily and
efficiently communicate with massively scalable deep storage
technologies. The DS3 interface allows data-intensive organizations to
utilize the highest density, most cost-efficient storage for long term
data retention and accessibility.
The DS3 interface is available today and provides:
“The new interface announced today is the first in a series of
innovative technologies and solutions we will be introducing to support
deep storage,” added Thompson.
“Adopting DS3 has been made easy for our current customers, as well as
new customers. It’s supported by all of our T-Series tape libraries as a
standalone, deep storage solution or a current customer’s library can be
partitioned to add on a deep storage partition.”
