As the industry has evolved to move more equipment offsite to data centre’s. Also with the increase of remote and hybrid workers, an emerging issue for organisations is: who will manage and load the tapes? FalconStor, a virtual tape library (VTL) solution, operates on the X86 platform and interfaces seamlessly with your other devices as a tape library, requiring no modification to your systems reliant on tape.

The use of VTLs is invaluable for organisations that have migrated their workloads to data centers, as they eliminate the need to send staff to change tapes or rely on data centers’ services for this task. Moreover, VTLs eliminate the need to have and store physical tapes containing your data, simplifying tape management.
