It’s compatible with all major backup packages and operating systems, and provides a choice of connectivity options—either direct-connect SCSI, Fibre Channel or iSCSI. And physically, the 4U library can be rack-mounted or used on a tabletop.

The BlueScale® Environment is a software solution built into Spectra Logic products that enables the libraries and other backup products to work simply, flexibly, and safely with your data. For over 14 years, BlueScale features have been continuously updated and enhanced to support new technologies to better safeguard your data. From remote management to self-monitoring, encryption, and media management, BlueScale helps you protect your data easier—and better.

The Spectra T50e is the only library in its class that offers a truly integrated encryption option for data backed up to tape. BlueScale introduces encryption and key management seamlessly into your backup strategy in just a few steps, all with no external hardware or software required. With AES-256 bit BlueScale Encryption and Key Management built into the T50e, encrypting backed up data is secure, efficient, easy to manage—and free.

The T50e is a highly dense storage unit that consumes minimal power and allows for you to take full advantage of tape's energy-saving benefits.
