6.7Gbps is fast indeed, I'm swayed.

How much is BRMS? (is included in 7.5 ?)

I'll look for local vendors of VTLs.


Since VTL is a server with disk storage and a tape emulation SW
it is still vulnerable to ransomware attack, is it not?

subject: RE: VTLs and backup time

During backups last night we had our technician running cacti to measure
the usage of the FC port.
A single system, running a backup with 4 drives running in parallel, was
eating 6.7Gbps.
It wouldn't be hard at all to blow the doors off of that 8gb adapter by
simply running multiple systems at the same time.

Compare that to a "300 MB/s Native data rate" of IBM's LTO 9 tape drive at
Rather like comparing a high speed laser printer to the Flintstones bird
