StarWind Virtual Tape Library Primary Use Case
We were looking for physical tape backups to protect against DR situations but were concerned about the fact that it would require manual intervention, with respect to the changing of tapes and sending them offsite. This is something that we could easily forget.
Luckily, I came across Starwind VTL. This product is the same as having a physical tape library without the hassle of changing tapes. The whole process is automated and we have the option of choosing between multiple cloud storage providers such as Amazon, Wasabi, Azure, etc.
It's been six months and it has been working well without any issue. The jobs are completed within 24 hours, which meets our RTO.
In regards to the cost, we ended up saving a few thousand dollars as well, due to the high cost of the physical tape library.View full review »
