One use for VTLs are NDMP backups, which can be written directly and  
thus bypass the media server.  You can send NDMP backups to an OST  
device, but not without going through a media server first.  Depending  
on how much data you have, that might mean additional media server(s)  
and a dedicated backup LAN.
