For organizations who are looking for cost efficient backup storage which can accelerate their backups and restores and add an extra level of data protection, our solution is StarWind Virtual Tape Library (VTL). It is a specialized high density storage array for infrequently accessed data engineered to deliver high performance for fast backups and restores as well as advance the Disaster Recovery (DR) scenario by replicating and tiering data to public cloud to fulfill the 3-2-1 backup rule.
VTL appliance seamlessly integrates into any existing backup environment by presenting itself as a standard tape library supported by all industry-standard backup solutions. It reduces backup times thanks to high performance disk back-end and ability to run multiple backup jobs to several tapes in parallel, while also deduplicating the data globally. This allows organizations to improve their Recovery Point Objectives (RPO), as quicker backups mean they can be done more frequently with less impact on the production environment. It also improves Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) by being able to restore significant amounts of company data and VMs almost instantly compared to physical tapes. StarWind VTL fulfills the 3-2-1 backup rule by maintaining and managing both onsite and offsite data copies by intelligently replicating and tiering backup data offsite per user-set policies, and offloading it to physical tape drives or libraries connected directly to the appliance.
Unlike similar virtual tape backup solutions, StarWind VTL brings several major advantages:
StarWind Virtual Tape Library delivers streamline data protection experience without the hassle of physical tape management and LTO Cleaning Cartridges. It integrates into any tape backup infrastructure without having to replace the backup software or even reconfigure it for a new backup media type.
StarWind VTL maximizes the storage cost efficiency with the help of global deduplication and compression. This way the data gets optimized not only within a tape, but also across the entire virtual library. In addition, the appliance seamlessly scales up and leverages the cloud storage economics for on-premises backup storage by offloading and replicating data to the public cloud.
StarWind VTL appliance significantly minimizes both RTO and RPO thanks to its performance. Backup job speeds outperform physical tapes and even NAS backup storage owing to the specially designed storage configuration. This also allows bringing the RTO close to zero by instantly launching the recovered VMs and applications directly from the appliance storage without having to wait till the data is copied back to the hypervisor hosts.
Virtual Tape Library seamlessly integrates into any tape-centric backup infrastructure with no changes to the existing backup policies by presenting backup storage as an industry-standard tape library.Learn more
