For IT professionals, disk-based backup is becoming an increasingly attractive alternative to slow and cumbersome tape backup in the data center. Virtual Tape Libraries (VTLs) bridge the two technologies - combining modern disk backup with traditional tape infrastructure - to store and safeguard your data. VTLs use high-performance, disk-based technology to emulate tape devices and appear to backup and recovery software as tape drives or tape libraries attached to the Fibre Channel (FC) SAN. Because they emulate legacy tape systems, VTLs transparently integrate into a customer's existing environment to provide fast, reliable backup and restore operations. Download this white paper to learn the key benefits of VTL.
