LTO7 tape drive recommendation

Post by flesz »

Hi,

We are planning to purchase LTO 7 tape library which is going to replace our old LTO 3 one. This way we would be able to fit a full backup on one tape rather than 12.
There are different brands on the market and I am not sure which one would be best.
Can anyone recommend a tape library with min 8 slots which works well with Veeam ?

Thanks

Hi Flesz,
As Veeam employee I will not recommend any particular vendor, but here is a Unofficial tape library compatibility list our customers helped us make.
Thanks!

Thanks Shestakov,
I was recommended Dell PowerVault TL1000 , which is also on the list you have given, so will give it a try.
