NetWorker tape drives in VTL environments
This includes all editions of:
- Microsoft Hyper-V
- Sun Solaris Zones
- Linux Xen.
The use of tape drives is qualified and considered safe for virtualization systems that allow for the full isolation of I/O.
NOTE: The physical I/O interface cannot be shared between guest containers.
These systems have the required capabilities:
- Solaris LDom
- IBM LPar
- HP VPar/NPar
Pure backup-to-disk solutions, such as Advanced File Type Device is fully supported. Other support is based on qualification efforts. The EMC Information Protection Software Compatibility Guide lists the supported operating systems.
