Spectra Logic tape storage for NASA

Spectra Logic : 22 April, 2009  (Application Story)
US space research centre saves data centre space with the installation of tape drives for secure data archiving from Spectra Logic
NASA Ames, a Silicon Valley-based research centre of NASA, has recently installed two Spectra T950 tape libraries with LTO-4 drives and media, which together offer approximately 20,000 data storage slots and up to 32 petabytes of storage capacity, with data compression. By replacing multiple outdated Sun/STK 9310 silos with Spectra Logic technology, NASA Ames has freed more than 1,400 square feet of valuable data center floor space.

After an extensive nine-month evaluation period, NASA selected Spectra Logic Federal to address its high performance computing (HPC) enterprise archive needs. Ten Sun/STK silos were replaced by two T950 units which include new library management features and functionality for NASA.

"We selected Spectra Logic Federal based on support, features (lifecycle management of media, assisted self maintenance, encryption, media warranty), density, and shortest time to production," said Alan Powers, HPC Technical Director, CSC. 'In addition, Spectra's ability to quickly incorporate specific enhancements that were important to NASA high-end computing operations also played a significant deciding factor."

"NASA is a long standing customer; Spectra's first T950 library was sold to NASA Langley nearly five years ago," said Brian Grainger, VP and founder of Spectra Logic Federal. "This award continues to solidify Spectra Logic's competitive edge in enterprise, HPC environments. Recent, prominent wins at HPC sites like Argonne National Laboratories, Los Alamos National Laboratories and now NASA Ames—three of the top five HPC sites globally— proves that Spectra is poised for continued success in HPC storage worldwide."
