"I know at least one of these has since went to cloud based IBM i."

That would be me. We're in ServIT's data center (NatNet). Evault is used
for all backups. If it became necessary to rebuild our IBM i from scratch,
they would do it from I don't know what, then restore all our Evault
backups to make it ours.

As an aside, Indiana Michigan Power had an outage yesterday afternoon
(substation went down around 1pm, 5000 customers affected). We were
without power for 2 hours. I have to say that was the LEAST stressful
power outage ever for me since the IBM i is not on premises. Both customer
service people work from home and were unaffected. Our UPS still had an
hour or more in the batteries when power was restored.

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.
