VIRTUAL TAPE LIBRARY (VTL) WITH DEDUPLICATION
FalconStor® Virtual Tape Library with Deduplication is a disk-based solution that connects to a server and “pretends” to be a tape drive or multiple drives. VTL optimizes tape backup and restore to improve performance and enable rapid remote disaster recovery.
Redundant data blocks are removed and replaced with pointers to the unique data copy. In effect, only changes from the last time the data was stored are kept. All unnecessary meta-data is removed, leaving only the raw data stored on disk. All of these processes are secure, automated, and error-free.
ADDRESS THE CHALLENGES OF LEGACY BACKUP WITH FALACONSTOR VTL WITH DEDUPLICATION
FalconStor VTL unifies NAS and VTL technologies to enhance legacy backup with a more flexible data protection architecture. By utilizing deduplication capability, you can reduce physical storage needs and costs.
Benefits include capacity reduction, longer data retention, improved restore times, and increased data reliability through the elimination of tape shipments. Complex passwords and customizable account lockout policies can be enabled to add additional layers of security without compromising performance.
Meet the backup window. Achieve single node aggregate backup speeds of up to 40TB/hour to meet your single biggest issue in backup.
Scale to meet data growth needs. Deploy the only solution that can independently scale high availability backup nodes from cluster deduplication nodes to handle large data sets and extremely demanding backup windows.
Reduce capacity requirements. Eliminate redundant data and reduce capacity requirements by as much as 95% while selecting the deduplication policy that best aligns performance to business requirements.
HOW VIRTUAL TAPE LIBRARY WITH DEDUPLICATION (VTL) WORKS TO ENSURE YOUR BACKUPS ARE AUTOMATED, SECURE, ENCRYPTED, AND FUTURE-PROOF
Experience non-disruptive deployment with a simplified, non-disruptive solution that integrates with major backup software, database utilities, archiving applications, virtual machine data, and manual file copy methods.
Seamlessly bridge disk and tape through best-of-breed tape management to streamline operations, prevent backup silos of backup, and eliminate unnecessary overhead.
Get transparent access to data regardless of location. With automated tape caching, tapes always appear to be inside virtual libraries and are always visible to the backup application, which always has direct access to data.
Consolidate tape to maximize utilization of physical media and significantly reduce the number of cartridges used, shipped, and stored, lowering overall costs.
Increase IT productivity by creating multiple copies of physical tapes, eliminating the need for manual tape duplication or scripting.
Enjoy peace of mind with pervasive security, such as encryption in-flight, support for federal compliance standards, support for complex passwords, user account lockout and password expiration limits, and integrated tape shredding provide optimal security.
