MirageFCVirtual Tape Controller (VTC) is the
key component of a high performance Virtual
Tape Library (VTL). The MirageFCVTC increases the performance and
reliability of the backup process by creating
VTLs utilizing Fibre Channel disk storage
systems. The Mirage “Embedded Archive Engine (EAE)”
archives virtual tape volumes to conventional
tape cartridges using a tape drive(s),
autoloader or tape library. The archive process is initiated and
managed by the MirageFC VTC as a background
process, without any additional software or
host resources. Archived tape cartridges are created as
if the tape was written directly by the
MirageFCsupports direct attached as well as SAN
fabric connections. Hardware integration
is simple. It’s also seamless to
operating systems and backup applications.
MirageFCdelivers immediate performance
improvements to backup, restore and archival
MirageFCsupports investments already made in
tape drives, libraries and RAID equipment as
application software. Mirage enables
users to keep their current configuration in
place, no hardware changes, no software
changes, no procedural or policy changes.
MirageFCoffers user selectable number of
Virtual Tape Library slots and drives.
Up to 8 virtual tape drives are supported per
controller. Additional controllers can be
added for scalability.
MirageFCautomatically emulates the attached
tape drive or library that is present.
In the absence of an archival tape device, a
variety of user selectable Tape Library
emulations are offered.
MirageFChas repositioned tape to its
appropriate place as a removable storage
device for archival purposes.
interconnect provides connection between the MirageFC VTC
and the server or FC network. 2Gb FC transfers
provide a sustained backup/restore transfer rate of
over 540GB/Hour per controller. Additional VTCs can
be added to increase performance.
Disk Storage Interconnect
The disk storage
interconnect supports 2Gb FC disk RAID systems. The MirageFC VTC supports up to 80TB of RAID storage per
controller. Base configuration supports 4TB.
Archival Storage Interconnect
tape uses a dedicated archival controller. SCSI or
fibre channel archival controllers are available.
Remote Management Interconnect
supports a 10/100 Ethernet RJ45 port for remote management
using an easy to use browser based GUI to monitor and
control Mirage Virtual Tape Library and Archival
