MirageFCSCVirtual Tape Controller (VTC) is
the key component of a high performance
Virtual Tape Library (VTL). MirageFCSCincreases the performance and
reliability of the backup process by creating
VTLs using 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 MirageFCSC 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

as well as SAN fabric connections.
Hardware integration is simple. It’s
also seamless to operating systems and backup

improvements to backup, restore and archival
MirageFCSCsupports investments already
made in tape drives, libraries and RAID
equipment as well as
application software. Mirage enables
users to keep their current configuration in
place, no hardware changes, no software
changes, no procedural or policy changes.

The number of VTL slots and drives is user
selectable. Up to 8 virtual tape drives
are supported per controller. Additional
controllers can be added for scalability.
MirageFCSCautomatically 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.
MirageFCSChas repositioned tape to its
appropriate place as a removable storage device
for archival purposes.
interconnect provides connection between the
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
Disk Storage Interconnect
The disk storage
interconnect supports 2Gb FC disk RAID systems. The
MirageFCSC VTC supports up to 80TB of disk storage per
controller. Base configuration supports 4TB.
Archival Storage Interconnect
MirageFCSCVTC can archive up to 4 SCSI tape drives,
standalone or in a tape library. Additional
VTC can be added for additional archival performance. SCSI
drive support allows you to extend your investment in
SCSI based tape drives, autoloaders, and libraries.
Remote Management Interconnect
MirageFCSCVTC 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 operations.
