Storage Newsletter: Spectra Logic and Geyser Data Partner to Launch Tape-as-a-Service Offering with Tape Archive Platform-as-a-Service

5/14/24, 7:00 PM

TaaS is a storage category that utilizes magnetic tape technology in a cloud-based, as-a-service model, combining the benefits of traditional tape storage, such as high durability and low cost, with the convenience and flexibility of cloud services.

Expected pricing is $27/month for each 18TB LTO-9 tape cartridge used, or approximately $1.50/TB.

The newly minted offering, to be known as Tape Archive Platform As-a-Service (TAPAS), will leverage the Spectra Cube cloud-optimized tape library, Spectra Certified LTO-9 media and Spectra BlackPearl S3-compatible object storage to create an object-based tape infrastructure that is fully compatible with any Amazon S3 or S3 Glacier application.

Geyser Data TaaS software will enable the provisioning, management, monitoring, billing and instantiation of the TAPAS offering. Service sales and delivery will be available through a global network of VARs, MSPs and data center providers.
