Tape libraries still have a place in the modern data center due to their ability to provide high-capacity storage backup with a low total cost of ownership. Scalability, virus, and data stability, mobility, and support of compliance add to physical tapes value in the data center.
While LTO technology continues to bring advancements in both speed and compression, it still requires an outage to get a true point in time backup. We see a huge value in coupling a robust tape backup solution with other more rapid point in time backup solutions like disk to disk or Flashcopy, found in IBM’s Storwize external SAN storage family.
Virtual tape for IBM i is a powerful tool for enhancing storage systems, speeding up backup operations, and facilitating higher availability of data. Virtual tape solutions can be integrated into existing systems and easily scaled.
Efficient, automated tape backups reduce error risk plus the consolidation of tape data helps to streamline backup management while utilizing less tape media. Most VTL solutions also provide offsite unit to unit replication to preserve your backup off site.
BRMS (Backup Recovery & Media services) is an IBM LPP (license program product) that facilitates centralized management of media by maintaining a consistent view of tape media, its contents, location, and availability across multiple IBM i servers or partitions. It allows you to automate, manage, and audit your backup solutions to insure you have a pain free recovery in the event you have to recover from your media.
