Are you thinking of using them for virtual tape backups ?
I'm still trying to determine the value over saving and FTPing save files.

subject: Virtual tape - size and saving
Doing some refreshing on virtual tape. I did some testing a couple of
years ago and decided at that time not to use it. Now I might.
What's the maximum size for a virtual volume? This page
1TB. Is that right? (Assuming you have that much available space to begin
with.) Does it just expand automatically as you're saving to it?
Also, I've used image catalogs for what seems like forever and love them.
All of mine are under '/ImageCatalogs'. I've always told BRMS to omit
'/ImageCatalogs' in saves. If I read it correctly on that same link above,
it says I can achieve the same results by doing "CHGATR
OBJ('/ImageCatalogs') ATR(*ALWSAV) VALUE(*NO)" I can't believe I haven't
noticed that before. Do the rest of you have it set to *ALWSAV *NO? Will
I need to do it on every folder within /ImageCatalogs or will doing it on
the parent folder suffice?
