Worldwide Virtual Tape Library 2008-2012 Forecast and Analysis Impact of Data Deduplication

This IDC study examines the virtual tape library (VTL) market and opportunities over the next five years. Adoption patterns are evaluated and forecasts for VTL revenue and terabytes are reported. In addition, IDC has provided extensive analysis of the impact data deduplication will have on revenue and consumption of terabytes.

"Currently, VTL vendors are adding new functionality such as data deduplication and replication. VTL vendors are espousing the benefits and value proposition of VTL systems with data deduplication aggressively. Furthermore, we believe these new features improve the economics of VTLs significantly and bring these solutions in much closer proximity to physical tape." - Robert Amatruda, research director at IDC
