StorageTek Virtual Storage Manager System

When you want to maximize the use of storage resources in support of data protection and archive applications, consider the market-leading virtual tape solution. The fifth generation of the StorageTek VSM system from Oracle offers significantly enhanced disk-to-disk-to-tape functionality to help enable revenuegenerating activities and reduce costs. Entry-level version of StorageTek Virtual Storage Manager (VSM) system, VSM 5e is designed for a highly scalable, sharable, high-performance storage solution for most, if not all, of your sequential files. Finally, add the optional StorageTek Virtual Library Extension (VLE) for an economical second tier of disk storage that can be utilized to boost the overall VSM storage capacity or to use VSM as a tapeless virtual library.

The StorageTek VSM system consists of a server, disk storage, and software that together provide a buffer or cache between the mainframe servers and the tape storage systems. Instead of writing directly to a physical drive, mainframe workloads read and write to virtual drives created and maintained by the virtual tape solution.

When you’re ready, you can have data moved predictably to real tape drives, where co-located data sets enable full cartridge utilization. Without virtual tape, you could be hampered by poor cartridge utilization, significant capital investment, and complex, inconsistent backup/restore activities.
