StarWind Virtual Tape Library Valuable Features

I like the fact that we can simultaneously upload the virtual tapes to different cloud providers, and the settings can be adjusted to speed up the upload times even further. This helps with our RPO objective, which is within 24 hours.

The cost is also much lower, as uploading to cloud storage providers such as Wasabi is very cheap. This is unlike physical tape libraries that can cost thousands of dollars in addition to tape costs.

The virtual tapes themselves are also in linear tape-open (LTO) format, which means they are air-gapped.

StarWind VTL allowed us to back up to virtual tape that was created within Veeam and upload the tape to the cloud.

This solution is easy to set up without having to have a lot of storage on-premises or change the backup solution that we already had in place, which saved us time and money.
