With miSAN® V Series D2D2T Virtual Tape Library, backup doesn't have to slow you down. Utilizing the power of RAID and Tape Virtualization, you can write data from all your heterogeneous workstations and servers to multiple disk based virtual tape libraries on the VTL at once - all with your existing tape backup software. With up to 24 disk drive bays of virtual tape capacity, and speeds of 500 MB/s, this D2D2T Virtual Tape Library makes short work of the biggest network backup jobs. Data remains in disk cache for near-instantaneous restore. Offload to portable tape for long term archival storage is a serverless operation that is performed in the background, so it won't slow your network performance. A disk based Virtual Tape Library strategy combines the performance of disk with the security and cost efficiency of tape for the ultimate in data protection.

Writing backup data disk-to-disk is much faster than writing direct to tape. Restores from virtual tape archives can be initiated instantaneously and also operate at disk speed. Our VTLs are capable of ingesting and storing backup at over 4 TB/hour.
You can execute multiple backup jobs concurrently to independent logical libraries to reduce overall backup time. The VTL copies backup data to tape as a background task without requiring use of your backup software. Directly attached tape devices involve no network traffic. Offload to tape is also efficient, operating at the rated speed of the tape drive.
Advanced byte-level, hardware-based deduplication reduces the disk space needed to hold backup images. The space reduction is typically over 98% of the original size, giving you the ability to store more backups in less disk space. Thin-provisioning of virtual tapes also helps to minimize disk space usage. At typical data deduplication rates, a single VTL chassis can retain for immediate restore the equivalent of over 1,000 TB of backup storage in normal expanded form.
Our VTLs offer more host and device interfaces than other systems- including iSCSI, SAS, and SCSI, 10 Gb Ethernet and Fiber Channel on the iSAN® V Series. We also have SCSI-to-iSCSI or SAS-to-iSCSI converters available so virtually any device can be connected.
Our VTLs support replicating data to a remote location. replication of deduplicated data is feasible over even a modest bandwidth connection. The system automatically manages copies of data at the primary and replication site.
Use your existing tape backup processes, software, and equipment. We work with any standard tape drive or tape library for emulation and output of backup images. You can specify the output destination down to individual slots. Our VTLs can work with any existing architecture, even mixed operating environments concurrently.
Our technical sales engineers are the best in the industry, and we look forward to working with you on a backup or storage solution that will exceed your expectations for performance, compatibility, scalability and ease of use.
