Re: Restoring Tapes from Azure Blob Archive tier storage

VTL tapes are not immutable by design. So, is your request about introducing immutability on the VTL level? Not exactly, I can and I do a tape immutability at Azure level using retention policy but VTL doesn't see it and doesn't check so when VTL issue a deletion command it doesn't report about an ...

Re: Restoring Tapes from Azure Blob Archive tier storage

Hi guys. Finally I've managed to make some tests and can proof that your VTL software works with Azure archive storage as I asked about (it writes directly to archive tier and rehydrate data directly to hot tier). I have to stated everything works flawlessly, it's a state of art :) Meanwhile I have ...

Re: Restoring Tapes from Azure Blob Archive tier storage

Guys,

it looks like you drop down your VTL product. The latest release was in 2021. Is it truth or we cat expect future releases?

As of me I really need an optimal restore process from Azure Archive tire storage.

Re: Restoring Tapes from Azure Blob Archive tier storage

Ahaha... LOL. "Version 8 (build 14033) Release Notes MS Azure support: Added the option to upload virtual files to Archive tier directly without uploading to Hot/Cool tier and then moving it to Archive tier in the cloud." Guys, whether you have been writing a wrong code for a year or someo...

Re: Restoring Tapes from Azure Blob Archive tier storage

Hi, Yes, I do. Here is what they said I believe that is the way StarWind Cloud Replicator works. Transferring from archive straight to hot costed more than moving data to cold tier as intermediate when the solution was designed. That's a delusion!

Re: Restoring Tapes from Azure Blob Archive tier storage

Do you have any feedback from R&D team? If you need I can proof that an archive->hot tier recover process is more cost efficient than the others.

Can I expect to see new features in the next release? Next August?

Re: KeepInCloud, KeepInStorage

Super, thanks. We're all in profit from such collaboration.

But such modification of AddVirtualTape script doesn't affect an automatic tape creation after the export.

Re: VTL Cloud Replication via PowerShell

Hi, Sorry for the delayed response. Could you try setting $keepInCloud to 1 day to see if tape moves properly? <timedeletecloud>180</timedeletecloud> in VTL1.SWDSK looks reliable to me. Could you try setting that value to 1 day and see if it finally works as expected? If you perform an upload a tap...

Hi Boris, I have exactly the same issue with version 8.0 13481 Free license. I try to adjust $keepInCloud setting to 180 d...

Re: KeepInCloud, KeepInStorage

Hello willn333, The option "Create new empty tapes automatically when existing tape removed from VTL for replication." can be changed in VTL device configuration file. For example in my case it's located here: "E:\VTL\VTL.swdsk" Just stop StarWind Virtual SAN and CloudReplicator...
