Don’t overthink —

Automated LTO P2V Conversion

Terrified by the thought of moving LTO archives to the cloud?

But what if we could automate this process for you?

For those looking to migrate existing digital assets and simplify data management, we’re offering to automatically virtualize any existing LTO Archives while preserving the original archive access method, structure, and barcodes.

If you’re looking to migrate your existing digital assets from LTO to disk or cloud storage, we do have a solution for that. We can automatically migrate all the existing LTO archives to our VTL appliance as well as any cloud or object storage, all while preserving the existing barcodes and archive structures.

StarWind VTLA Features

StarWind gets praise for its solution's high level of customization in the 2019 Magic Quadrant for HCI

  • Object Storage Support

    StarWind VTL dramatically simplifies storage management for organizations by interconnecting isolated storage silos like mainframe backup storage or legacy IBM backup storage. VTLA seamlessly integrates any industry-standard object storage arrays to expand the local storage pools. This way VTL unifies storage management and automates the organization’s data flow between primary backup storage, on-premises object storage, and public cloud storage.
  • Cloud Storage Support

    StarWind VTL transparently extends existing on-premises backup storage pools to Azure, AWS or other public cloud storage services. This serves two purposes. First, organizations can transparently scale up storage capacity without purchasing any extra hardware. Second, public cloud storage offers the most appealing $/GB rate for long-term data archival.
  • Fibre Channel Support

    Mainframe systems and legacy infrastructures require modernized backup storage. StarWind makes mainframe backups easy by providing customers who have an IBM mainframe investment with an FC attached Virtual Tape Library. This simplifies mainframe data protection and shrinks archival costs by moving away from tape towards either organization's FC storage or cloud storage without having to rebuild the existing infrastructure from scratch.
