Hello, I am exploring options to speed up our backup. Currently we back up our IBM i to an LTO4 tape drive. The backups are starting to take longer and longer and we need to find a way to speed things up. Obviously a faster drive would be one option, but I was also wondering if we could explore using a virtual tape drive to back up (faster) and then back up the virtual tape to actual tape. Does anyone have any experience with this sort of setup? Any and all input and suggestions is appreciated!
