STARWIND Virtual Tape Library (VTL)


STARWIND Virtual Tape Library (VTL)

StarWind VTL helps businesses move beyond their costly physical tape backup processes without sacrificing regulatory data archival and retention requirements thanks to on-premises Virtual Tape Libraries with cloud and object storage tiering. Protect your backups from ransomware by keeping them "air-gapped" on virtual tapes. Replicate and tier your backups to any public cloud and use any industry-standard object storage for flexible scalability, as well as maximized security and cost-efficiency.



  • Works on both Windows and Linux
  • Emulates industry-standard tape libraries with FC and iSCSI connectivity
  • Protects from ransomware through secure air-gapping in cloud storage

  • Simplicity - VTL integrates seamlessly and requires zero changes to the established backup and archival process. Support for data migration solutions like Amazon Snowball, Azure Data Box, Backblaze Fireball, and others makes the process streamlined.
  • Reliability - VTL automates and secures offsite backup and archival by eliminating human process and the need to ship physical tapes offsite. Data storage reliability is also higher with the ability to select geo-redundant storage with individual FTT levels.
  • Return on Investment - VTL is up to 10 times faster than LTO. It's also less expensive to operate and maintain than LTO. With added cloud and object storage support you get a storage system that scales to your needs and becomes more and more cost efficient over time.
