General product family overview:
DR’s Virtual Tape Library (VTL) is an emulation of a physical tape library (SUN/STK L700) on a disk-based deduplication and compression system such as the DR Series system. The tape library is exposed to a Data Management Application (DMA) as if it is a physical library with tape drives and cartridges, which the application uses for backup.
