What is most valuable?

This solution is working for both VTL and tape.

What needs improvement?

This solution is no longer managing tapes correctly. I had to script another one to make the software use fewer tapes. Normally, you would have backup software tuned for speed or capacity and here, it was tuned for speed, which could be the reason for so many bad tapes.

What other advice do I have?

For now, I am pleased with this solution. I have been using this solution for twelve years and I know how it works. At this time I don't have any suggestions for additional features to be added, except for the bad managing of tapes. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are operating an IBM shop, everything is IBM. Our customers are here for IBM.
