IBM i shops are taking advantage of VTL, allowing them to:

Recover quickly from threats

Are you concerned with Ransomware?  You should be. Having an immutable backup means you have peace of mind that you can recover, if breached. 

Shorten Backup Windows

Do you want to speed up your backup?  Disk is faster than tape.  Implementing a VTL can drastically shorten your backup window, having a positive impact on your users.

Eliminate tape handling

Since the pandemic changed how we work, are you looking to eliminate tape handling?

 

Getting your backups offsite quickly is another layer of protection.  Replication to a second VTL gets your backups offsite in the event that you have a local disaster. The best part is it happens automatically and can complete before you even come into work.

Reduce offsite storage cost

Offsite storage can be costly and so can buying more and more media.  VTL’s mean you don’t have to pay for offsite storage of tapes or buy more media.  Plus, it’s not getting the tapes offsite that is the hard part, it’s getting them back for a restore. 

With a VTL you have fast and easy access to your backup, no more waiting for the courier to arrive.
