I knew of a few local companies who used alternative VTL's. They did not interface well with BRMS and would not be usable for bare metal restores. In fact I think you may have had to use their backup commands. But the concept there was do a full system save to physical tape and use that for the bare metal and loading the restore process. Then continue on with their VTL.
Not the way I would have wanted to do it but they felt it was worth it for the price difference.
I know at least one of these has since went to cloud based IBM i.
