The VTL interface has been superseded by OST based devices and NetBackup's own 
disk staging technologies.

If I were to start again I would take a serious look at the disk and 
deduplication options available in NetBackup's 7.x.

NetBackup 7.x now converges three technologies:

1/ deduplication at client
2/ deduplication at media server
3/ deduplication at disk target

This convergence is tightly integrated across the NetBackup suite.

Once you start introducing a mix of technologies in the backup data path the 
solution because less efficient.

To all,

I was hoping to get some feedback from the community on what type of VTL you 
guys use and if you would recommend looking into it.

We currently have Copan and NetApp VTL. NetApp disbanded their VTL practice so 
moving forward support will be an issue. Copan is and has been running well, we 
are just looking into alternatives, if it makes sense.

Any suggestions?

Thank you for your feedback in advance.
