Spectra Verde DPE

Spectra Logic has unveiled Spectra Verde DPE, a new shingled magnetic recording (SMR)-based NAS disk platform designed to provide high-density bulk storage for reliable, high-capacity digital preservation.                                                                                  

Verde DPE (digital preservation enterprise), based on the proven technology of the Verde disk platform, utilises the newest SMR disk technology and is optimised by Spectra Logic’s ZFS implementation. Verde DPE simplifies the interface to ZFS with an intuitive user interface and simple installation, while being designed for maximum cost effectiveness with costs as low as seven pence per gigabyte raw.                                                        .

With SMR technology and Spectra’s implementation of ZFS software RAID, Verde DPE provides data integrity with RAID Z3 triple parity, automatic rebuild to global spare drives, continuous data checksum, and asynchronous replication. The built-in NFI portal provides an S3 link to Spectra tape libraries through the BlackPearl Deep Storage Gateway, creating a genetically diverse storage strategy.
