I have been searching for free VTL (Virtual Tape Library) software
have finally found this product (http://linuxvtl.googlepages.com/
is great coz it runs on Linux and is free :)
Now I felt that this may be of interest some of you guys that would be
involved in various backup solutions for Linux based networks. From what I
can basically gather is that this runs over ISCSI so would also be of use
in producing a Linux based SAN as well (I need to check this out further)
In any case this could be if the product is stable and use-able enough an
excellent backup to disk solution before writing off physical tape.
Has anyone come across this product before?
Would anybody find this product useful?
I need to get it installed and test it before I can decide if it is good
enough to deploy in an SME environment.
Looks interesting, I wonder if the Openfiler people are planning on
integrating it, which is another thing worth looking at :) I am about to
put one of those into production here :)
