Maximum Cost Effectiveness – Unmatched Data Integrity

Verde DPE Overview

Verde DPE is a Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR)-based Network Attached Storage (NAS) disk platform that delivers high density bulk storage. Engineered for data reliability and integrity, Spectra’s unique implementation of ZFS software RAID combined with the newest disk technology brings new life to long-term storage – Verde DPE.

Preserve your information with multiple layers of protection at an affordable price – all from a company that you want to do business with. Verde DPE offers the lowest cost enterprise disk solution without sacrificing reliability. Built around archive grade SMR drives, Verde DPE provides long term data storage at a fraction of the cost of traditional NAS, as low as 9¢/GB.

Multiple layers of protection ensure your data is protected.

  • Spectra’s ZFS implementation takes advantage of SMR technology for bulk sequential writes
  • Triple parity RAID Z3 and rebuild to global spares pushes probability of data loss to 1 in over 2.7 million years when properly monitored and maintained
  • Continuous data checksum verifications statistically eliminate bit-rot typical in other hardware RAID systems
  • Replication allows snapshot mirroring to a sister-system
  • Spectra BlackPearl and S3 interface provide a simple way to send a copy of your data to tape for long-term storage and genetic diversity


Easy to Use

Verde DPE’s simple user interface makes setup and management easy. With the front panel Visual Status Beacon (VSB) LED get real time visual status of the unit for rapid diagnostics and troubleshooting.

Easy to Expand

Highly scalable Verde DPE network attached storage provides simple disk expansion in 200TB increments for up to 7.4PB in a single rack. Using 96 drives within 4U expansion units, a superior density of up to 180TB per rack unit can be achieved in a small footprint.

Easy to Maintain

Verde DPE provides intelligent rebuilds and built-in global spares to ensure the system is always running smoothly and reliably to preserve your digital assets forever. Simple and straightforward SpectraGuard Support options that you’ve come to expect from Spectra are available with a Pricelock Guarantee.
