Alternatives to AWS VTL and Starwind?

Post by mikeely » Mar 06, 2019 10:41 pm

They both fail to meet our needs for various reasons, but my Google skills seem off today as I'm not finding anything out there to match the functionality. What I'm looking for is a way to store specific Veeam backups to Glacier seamlessly as would work if the AWS VTL had a bigger cache...

Hello Mike,

Unfortunately I am not aware of any other software with the same functionality. May I ask why StarWind VTL is not working for you?

Mostly the UI is archaic, also I'm concerned by what I've seen on the part of the devs in their forum.

The beauty of VTL is that you just set it and forget it as there is no need to touch it unless you want to perform tape import :wink:
