Spectra Logic reports double-digit growth

Share this on social media:

Spectra Logic has announced a record quarter for its disk-based backup and de-duplication appliances. The positive quarter reflected strong double-digit year-on-year growth for its enterprise and mid-range data protection solutions, which include disk, tape, software and services.

Following three consecutive years of profitability, Spectra Logic sustained its profitable track record, posting profits for its fiscal second quarter and first half of 2010, which ended 31 December. The world’s highest capacity enterprise tape library, the Spectra T-Finity, was one of many products that the company introduced during this period.

Nathan Thompson, Spectra Logic’s chief executive officer and founder, believes that the company's successful year comes a as a result of the company's R&D: 'Spectra Logic continues to invest in innovative backup and archive solutions that support today’s demanding data protection requirements, including those driven by massive data growth, increased use of digitisation and rigorous compliance regulations,' he said.

Increased sales of the company’s data protection solutions were driven by strong traction in the HPC, media and entertainment, and federal government sectors as well as new product introductions.
