Spectra Logic Announces General Availability of StorCycle
BOULDER, Colo., Dec. 5, 2019 –Spectra Logic, a leader in data storage and data management solutions, today announced general availability of StorCycle, a storage management software solution designed for data-driven organizations needing a modern storage lifecycle management workflow. Typically, around 80 percent of an organization’s data is inactive, but is kept on an expensive primary storage tier, taking up valuable storage capacity and increasing storage costs. StorCycle provides an affordable and effective way for organizations to identify and move this inactive data to lower-cost storage platforms while making it easily accessible to users.
StorCycle automatically scans primary storage for inactive files and migrates them to a lower cost tier of storage, called the Perpetual Tier, which can include any combination of cloud storage, object storage disk, network-attached storage (NAS) and tape, ensuring the data is protected. This reduces the amount of data on expensive primary storage, shrinking backup and recovery windows, reducing the need for additional primary storage, and increasing overall performance.
In addition, StorCycle’s unique Project Archive feature enables users to tag and move entire project data sets to a perpetual storage tier. The completed project can be accessed by an organization when needed, all while being preserved on less costly storage for as long as required.
