Turbocharge your backup and
The Sun StorageTek' Virtual Tape Library Plus
(VTL Plus) improves the performance of existing
backup and recovery application processes by
presenting a multitude of virtual tape drive
and library resources that can be deployed,
managed, and monitored from a single point.
Consolidate and simplify
The Sun StorageTek VTL Plus permits multiple
backups to occur simultaneously, consolidating
backup and helping to close the backup window.
The disk presents itself to the operating environ-
ment as tape, so you can preserve existing tape
and backup procedures and protect your invest-
ment in your current backup software. Within
your existing architecture, you can consolidate
the management and provisioning of backup
resources, share tape devices across backup
applications, and add new workloads without
affecting tape configurations.
The concept of storage virtualization and
consolidation is no longer hype. The benefits
are real and so is the solution. Sun’s vision for
storage virtualization offers you solutions that
make data storage simple, flexible, and efficient -
allowing you to store and move data when you
want, to where you want based on your desired
availability, performance, cost per gigabyte, and
the value of your data at each stage of its life.
With virtualization, you’ll achieve a level of data
protection that you only dreamt of.
The Sun StorageTek VTL Plus is the premier
storage virtualization solution for companies
looking to take advantage of both disk and tape
storage in one single unit. The appliance
combines a server, disk storage and software in
a single unit that integrates seamlessly with
leading backup products.
Lower your operational costs
The Sun StorageTek VTL Plus not only makes life
simpler, it helps save you money because you
reduce manual oversight and intervention.
With improved asset utilization, you can defer or
delay purchases of additional ta
