IBM Spectrum Archive is a member of the IBM Spectrum Storage™ software portfolio which is designed to address data storage inefficiencies by changing the economics of storage with a layer of intelligent software. This software creates an efficient “data footprint” that dynamically stores every bit of data at the optimal cost, helping maximize performance and ensuring security.
IBM Spectrum Archive Enterprise Edition (Spectrum Archive EE) gives organizations an easy way to use cost-effective IBM tape drives and libraries within a tiered storage infrastructure. By using tape libraries instead of disks for Tier 2 and Tier 3 data storage—data that is stored for long-term retention—organizations can improve efficiency and reduce costs related to storing growing amounts of data. Spectrum Archive EE seamlessly integrates with the scalability, manageability and performance of IBM Spectrum Scale, an IBM enterprise file management platform that enables organizations to move beyond simply adding storage—to optimizing data management.
