Disk storage is an important part of the backup and recovery process. Today, many organizations are utilizing VTL technology (Virtual Tape Libraries) to consolidate data storage and improve restore times. VTL’s present a storage component as tape library or tape drive to work with your existing backup software.
As an IBM, EMC and Cybernetics partner and top reseller for more than twenty five years, ABC Services can guide you through your storage upgrade.
