Global Distribution Announces Spectra StorCycle as a New Offering in Suite of Data Storage Solutions

Sept. 10, 2019 – Global Distribution announces today the addition of Spectra Logic’s latest innovation, Spectra StorCycle™. A new storage management software solution, StorCycle is designed for data-driven organizations that require a modern approach to storage lifecycle management workflows.

This solution addresses the needs of customers dealing with large data sets that are growing exponentially. Typically, most of this data is stored on an expensive Primary Tier of storage. However, up to 80 percent of this data may be inactive, costing both space and money, and should be moved to more cost-effective storage. Spectra’s StorCycle software does just that.

StorCycle allows organizations to create a new Perpetual Tier of storage, reducing the overall cost of storing data by up to 70 percent. StorCycle automatically scans primary storage data for inactive files and migrates them to a secure Perpetual Tier, which can include any combination of cloud storage, object storage disk, network-attached storage (NAS) and tape, ensuring the data is protected, while making it easily available to end users.

“Spectra Logic appreciates our channel partners and the value and expertise they bring to solving customer storage challenges”, said Spectra CEO Nathan Thompson. “StorCycle will benefit Global Distribution’s customers who have yet to find an easy and economical way to activate true storage lifecycle management for the long-term.”

About Spectra Logic Corporation Spectra Logic develops data storage and data management solutions that solve the problem of long-term digital preservation for organizations dealing with exponential data growth. Spectra enables affordable, multi-decade data storage and access by creating new methods of managing information in all forms of storage—including archive, backup, cold storage, private cloud and public cloud.
