Why Choose Virtual Tape Libraries for your IBM i?
Virtual Tape Libraries (VTLs) offer companies the ability to solve several problems with their current tape backups.
With VTLs, you can:
- Reduce backup and restore times
- Eliminate tape handling
- Automate offsite replication of backups
- Reduce media and storage costs
- Protect your data with immutable backups
iTech Solutions offers Cybernetics Virtual Tape Libraries as an alternative to tape backups
Cybernetics Virtual Tape Libraries provide the best backup speed capability and deduplication ratios.
It’s also the most cost effective solution compared to competitors.
Sized to meet your needs
With several different models to choose from, there is a VTL for companies of every size. We work with you to determine which model meets your needs and your budget.
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.
