Backup & Recovery

This video demonstrates how to configure Backup Exec for Amazon Gateway VTL Cloud Storage Backups.

For additional information please review the Blog Post on Introducing Backup Exec Support for AWS Storage Gateway VTL.



Very nice video demo, Thank you!

Is there a way to automatically create new virtual tapes on an as-needed basis?

Tape provisioning is performed outside Backup Exec via:

  1. AWS Web Console
  2. AWS API
  3. AWS CLI

Can you please provide further details on your use case - feel free also to send me a Private Message or Email via my Connect Profile.

Most customers we talk to like to manage their Virtual Tape Media by provisioning it in advance. AWS charges per data stored to AWS VTL.
