A virtual tape system works like a typical magnetic tape storage system but is enabled and integrated with cloud storage and virtualization techniques. A virtual tape system is generally implemented to achieve enhanced storage management performance and reduce disk cartridge waste.
VTS eliminates data retrieval latency by storing an instance of frequently used programs in disk caches to provide faster access to the data. VTS also uses a virtual tape library (VTL) built over storage virtualization to reduce the amount of tape disk required.
