right. Then also not to forget to have the IBM i host have multiple NPIV capable ports to gain faster speed.
It's of not much use to have one 8GBit fiber port on the host and 4 fast LTO6 drives with one 8GBit (or faster)
port for each drive. Been there, done that ;-)

One big difference between a VTL and one of those IBM 3xxx series physical libraries with multiple drives is that the VTL uses a single port on the NPIV capable switch even if it has multiple tape drives configured in it. The physical library has you run a separate cable from each drive in the library to the NPIV switch.
