Virtual tape libraries (VTL) allow users to configure virtual tape drives and cartridges as well as specify cartridge capacity. This white paper explores the functionality behind the three components of the VTL-computer hardware, application software, and a RAID-based array of disk drives-and explains why this approach is a better choice than physical tape libraries. Read on to learn how your IT shop can benefit from the following capabilities:

  • No need to change the backup paradigm: configure the device just as you would any other tape library and drive
  • Add virtual tape drives by simply changing the software configuration: no need to purchase and install additional drives
  • Decreased likelihood of read and write failures
  • And more
