Maintenance and media costs are sky high and storage administrators with older tape libraries are left with a dead-end technology roadmaps for tape backup and archive solutions. In response, Spectra Logic is announcing the availability of the new Spectra T680 for large mid-range or small enterprise customers. The T680 offers three significant advantages:

The highest density and most energy efficient storage available in a data center rack

The T680 provides two to three times more storage density per square foot of floor space, and consumes approximately half the power of competing mid-range libraries, in matching LTO-4 configurations.
