Spectra Logic, StorMagic Announce Active Archive Repository for Video Surveillance

BOULDER, Colo., July 21, 2021 — Spectra Logic, a global leader in data storage and data management solutions, today announced a partnership with StorMagic, a company that simplifies storage and security from the edge to the core, to deliver a complete end-to-end active archive for video surveillance and digital evidence management. The joint storage solution combines StorMagic’s ARQvault, the first active intelligent repository to manage and retrieve digital assets using powerful analytics, and Spectra Logic’s award-winning BlackPearl NAS system and enterprise-class tape libraries to protect large amounts of data in multiple locations for as long as needed.

The global video surveillance market is expected to record high growth over the next several years as organizations and municipalities collect and save petabytes of video footage to enhance public safety, prevent crime and terrorism, thwart theft, mitigate corruption and capture evidence of criminal behavior for legal purposes. Organizations are also using video surveillance assets to enhance business processes and identify new opportunities. This growth in video surveillance has accelerated the need for efficient, high-capacity storage of raw video content. In addition, growth in media and entertainment content has compelled organizations with hundreds of thousands of hours of digital video, audio and images to optimize their workflows with storage infrastructures designed for simple retrieval and long-term content repurposing.

To address these requirements, the new joint storage solution from StorMagic and Spectra Logic combines StorMagic ARQvault software’s ability to move data automatically to Spectra BlackPearl NAS and Spectra Tape Libraries for nearline and long-term storage, and facilitates the fast retrieval of video footage and digital assets when it must be recalled. The simple, scalable solution enables organizations of all sizes with huge digital storage requirements to modernize their security and storage infrastructures for preservation and usage.
