Mayastor Virtual Tape Library for Linux
- Highly reliable backup system
By utilizing high availability features of disk such as RAID-5 and redundant hotswap components the backup system is highly reliable and available.
- Reduced backup windows
Higher backup throughput means reduced backup window. Mayastor VTL achieves greater throughput by using write buffering and optimizing the data layout as sequential I/O blocks. Since there is no physical movement of tape the backup application sees faster tape loads/unloads.
- Easy to manage
Since it appears as standard SCSI SMC-2 compliant medium changer device it integrates easily with existing solutions and is easy to manage and deploy. Administrators continue to use their existing backup software.
- Dynamic tape volume configuration
By using additional storage virtualization techniques the software easily tackles any data growth challenges your organization may have. This means tape volumes can be expanded without loss of data.
- Fibre Channel and IP SAN support
Mayastor VTL supports both Fibre Channel SAN and iSCSI based IP SAN and makes a great addition to your unified storage infrastructure.
- SSC-2 compliant tape
- SCSI Media Changer commands compliant
- Write Buffering
- VTL partitions
- Dynamic LUN configurations
- Works over FC and IP-SAN (iSCSI)
