CHRISTCHURCH, England and BOULDER, Colorado, January 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Bridgeworks enables Spectra Logic to reach further and faster with high speed iSCSI connectivity and remote storage solutions
Bridgeworks, innovator and provider of the world's fastest data movement solutions, announced with Spectra Logic, the deep storage experts, a full certification for the Oresund high performance iSCSI protocol gateways and WANrockIT, the WAN Optimisation and Acceleration solution across the full range of Spectra's T-Series Tape Libraries.
The adoption of 10Gb and 40Gb Ethernet infrastructures within the virtualized computing environment has created a challenge connecting to peripherals. Whilst many of the new peripherals have adopted 10Gb and 40Gb iSCSI connectivity, the high-speed tape devices such as LTO-5 and LTO-6 drives are only available with the Fibre Channel protocol. With the Oresund 10Gb and 40Gb iSCSI to Fibre Channel gateways it is now a simple action to transparently connect Spectra's high performance tape libraries to the iSCSI SAN.
Many organizations still employ a courier service with off-site tape storage for data back-up, which is not practical in this day of exponential data growth. WANrockIT has proven ability to transport data over TCP/IP without the performance penalty that is normally associated with a WAN, expanding Spectra's solutions portfolio with remote vaulting for Disaster Recovery and Archiving.
Combining WANrockIT's patented Optimization and Acceleration technology with Spectra's tape library portfolio represents a paradigm shift for Disaster Recovery solutions where distance is no longer an inhibiting factor. WANrockIT automates and accelerates data movement over distance with efficiency and consistency, exceeding 95 percent bandwidth utilization and bringing performance back whether 20 miles or 2000 miles apart.
"Our customers look to us for new and innovative solutions that provide cost savings, added flexibility and greater security to their data protection platforms. Bridgeworks provides the ability to connect to high performance iSCSI SANS and the benefit of geographic independence," says Matt Starr, the Chief Technology Officer at Spectra Logic. "With the ability to transfer data over long distances at speeds of up to 15TB/hour, WANrockIT allows our customers to think differently about their Data Dispersal strategy through TCP/IP and are no longer restrained by physical distance."
