Energy Efficient Tape Solution Simplifies Backup with Easy Management, Integrated Security and Intelligent Self-Monitoring
 
Spectra Logic announced the U.S. Army’s Tank-Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) agency in Michigan awarded Spectra Logic with a federal contract for two Spectra T950 tape libraries using LTO-4 technology.
 
The U.S. Army TARDEC removed a Sun StorageTek L700e tape library and replaced it with the T950, and realized immediate savings in backup operator time and cost, freed several square feet of data center floor space, increased capacity by 990 percent and eased administration through the library’s user-friendly management interface.  With two Spectra T950 libraries, the U.S. Army TARDEC was able to designate one for classified data and the other for unclassified data, which eased its administrative burden. The Spectra T950 tape libraries work with Symantec NetBackup software to back up and protect more than 22TB of data weekly.
 
“Spectra Logic continues to expand its presence throughout the Department of Defense with this recent success at the Army TARDEC,” said Brian Grainger, vice president of sales. “The Spectra T950 leads the market with the highest storage density available today along with significant energy and space savings, and ease of use, all contributing significantly to the U.S. Army contract award.”
