High-Speed Inline Deduplication for SAN Environments

Data Domain Virtual Tape Library (VTL) software emulates multiple tape libraries over a Fibre Channel interface and seamlessly integrates with the existing backup infrastructure to enable cost-efficient long term retention on disk and more reliable, high-speed recoveries of backup data.

Key Features

  • Scalability: Data Domain VTL software eliminates tape-related failures by enabling all Data Domain systems to emulate multiple tape libraries and tape drives with up to 64,000 virtual slots across up to 250,000 virtual cartridges.
  • Network-Efficient Disaster Recovery: Using Data Domain Replicator software, virtual cartridges can be vaulted over the wide area network (WAN) to another site for disaster recovery, remote office data protection and multi-site tape consolidation.
