Sun StorageTek Virtual Storage Manager (VSM) Key Benefits
Contains costs while managing massive data growth without adding more libraries, drives and media
Mitigates risk by transparently copying and migrating critical business information offsite and/or automatically making additional copies according to policies
Improves customer service with improved access time to information
Contain IT costs
VSM system helps contain IT costs by improving utilization of storage assets and driving cartridge utilization close to 100 percent. Cartridge counts can be reduced dramatically, from thousands to hundreds or even tens. And, CPU upgrades can often be postponed since VSM system is a single integrated solution that is 100 percent automated and independent of the processor.
Deliver service-level objectives
VSM system helps meet service-level objectives and enhance customer service. Tape performance is improved by accessing data at disk speeds and utilizing virtual tape drives to handle peak processing workloads. Batch times can be reduced, freeing up mainframe resources.
Data protection applications run faster, reading and writing data to disk while VSM system manages the downstream copying to tape based on policies. Recovery is at disk speed; so business resumption is faster.
VSM system helps organizations adapt to business changes by providing greater flexibility in how IT resources are used to meet shifting IT priorities. It facilitates cost effective increases in storage capacity without interrupting critical business applications.
Automate data protection
VSM system can transparently copy and migrate critical business information offsite as well as automatically make additional copies.
Strengthen disaster recovery operations
When implemented as part of a remote vaulting infrastructure, VSM system makes disaster recovery more efficient by reducing data volumes and the number of tapes to manage. High data transfer rates further speed recovery. And VSM system reduces the impact of media errors.
Multiple copies are created based on user-defined policies.
Virtual Storage Manager system makes the implementation of disaster recovery plans easier, more predictable and more reliable due to reduced data volumes, higher transfer rates and fewer tapes to manage.
Manage tape storage strategy intelligently
Move data simply and predictably according to user-defined rules, which helps simplify tape operations. VSM system enables the management of back-end resources independent of applications and service requirements. Automated media migration and policy management help enable continuous operations for business applications during migration and consolidation.

Sun Microsystems, Inc. was a company that sold computers, computer components, computer software, and information technology services. On January 27, 2010, Sun was acquired by Oracle Corporation.
In 1987, the company began using SPARC, a RISC processor architecture of its own design, in its computer systems, starting with the Sun-4 line. SPARC was initially a 32-bit architecture (SPARC V7) until the introduction of the SPARC V9 architecture in 1995, which added 64-bit extensions.
Since 2010, all further development of Sun machines based on SPARC architecture (including new Oracle SPARC T-series servers, SPARC T3 and T4 chips) is done as a part of Oracle Corporation hardware division.
The Java platform was developed at Sun in the early 1990s.
Sun sold its own storage systems to complement its system offerings; it has also made several storage-related acquisitions. On June 2, 2005, Sun announced it would purchase Storage Technology Corporation (StorageTek).
