Virtual Tape Library Appliance Features

Object Storage Support

StarWind VTL dramatically simplifies storage management for organizations by interconnecting isolated storage silos. It allows using any industry-standard object storage arrays to expand the local storage pools. This way VTL unifies storage management and automates 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.
