|Cybernetics' Virtual Tape Solutions Protect Data||What is a Virtual Tape Library?||Why emulate tape?||Cybernetics' Virtual Tape Libraries are designed to eliminate the challenges you face in archiving and protecting your valuable data. Our units are incredibly easy to install, manage, scale and will adapt as your network changes.||A VTL is a storage device that emulates one or multiple tape drives/libraries. It's designed to greatly reduce your backup window and increase your restore speeds, especially when compared to tape drives. They can also reduce the amount of disk storage you need for long term data retention and minimize the bandwidth required for site-to-site replication.||
By appearing as tape, you have 100% compatibility with any backup software that supports tape without any operational learning curve. This includes BackupExec, ARCserve, CommVault, Tivoli, DPM, native i5/OS backup commands, BRMS, Robot/SAVE, IPL and many more.
There are no additional software/agents required. Whether you're running Windows, i5/OS or any Unix derivative, a single VTL can protect your entire data center easily.
By emulating tape at the block level on disk, any off-line copies sent off-site via physical tape will remain compatible with your backup software. In an emergency situation, restores can be done without access to the virtual tape library.
